No one has officially announced that they are running for President in 2016 that I am aware of. I don't understand why people are even bothering. There are still politicial issues to discuss.

Republicans and democrats ALIKE, should start picking their candidates based on something besides national talking points, which are mostly BS on BOTH SIDES!-USABorn

We have common ground on this. GOOD POST-Scott

Still all of the talk about Hillary or the 2016 election is premature and pure conjecture. The democrats have more than Hillary and Biden to consider and they should. Unfortunately all the right can do is trash talk not only the democrats but those within their own party. Face it members of the right wing just did litmus tests on politicians from right for how conservative they are. They even performed litmus tests for liberalism also for the left. They do love their meaningless tests.

"Chuck, Unlike liberals, conservatives look at the ideas and not the labels"

LOL That was a hoot of a statement. You have labelled everyone here. Ideas you haven't a clue what an idea is. You have disagree with people who call themselves conservative which means you do not see them as conservative as you. You are not capable of thinking nor of thought. Your head explodes all the time!

Rand Paul has bi-partisan appeal? Seriously? If Rand Paul runs against Hillary he will lose. I am a democrat who could vote for a Republican. I know others who could do the same. Rand Paul is not an option. Fact.

Why is it when someone posts a FACT, Sham has to revert to p o r n for a comment?" - USABorn

Because, none of those "facts" are accompanied with SOME sort of reference...which tells ME those "facts" were delivered, orally...typically, from the Clear Channel comedy-shows.

Another Kathleen Parker thought.....President Obama talks loudly and carries a twig.

[As opposed to the saying walk softly and carry a big stick.]

RMiller, I think that I can speak for many....being quiet about the last paragraph is not necessarily an endorsement. The S/G should have used their editing rights.

Yeah...sure...he ("obviously") wants to end his political-career, as the NEXT/sacrificial/throw-away Republican Presidential-candidate.

There's a much-better chance he'll be standing at the shoreline...laughing...with the REST O' THE CROWD...at the sinking of the U.S.S. Teabagger.

"That is one of the Republican party's problems. The extreme far right basically picks the nominee."

Conservatives picked Juan McShame in 08? BWAHAHAHAHA Sorry, but that was the Nat'l GOP along with idiots like Rove. It's time for republicans to kick aside the Nat'l GOP, just like it is time for democrats to rid themselves of idiots like Dem Nat'l Committee Chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, just a Rove in drag!

Republicans and democrats ALIKE, should start picking their candidates based on something besides national talking points, which are mostly BS on BOTH SIDES!

Why is it when someone posts a FACT, Sham has to revert to p o r n for a comment? If he did a little honest research, he wouldn't have to lie so much, or revert to his p o r n for yet another worthless comment.

By the way, anyone notice his worthless bloviating is at warp speed?

"Face it guys, Benghazi will be a thing of the past because most won't care, only the ones on the losing team. -Rick"

And what a sad statement to make about American citizens who were brutally murdered on your President's watch (perhaps literally). I'm hoping none of the family members who lost those persons, can view this heartless comment from a supposed American Citizen.

Well, my conservative friends.......here is where we part company and I suspect, without reading the remainder of the posts, that I might be alone in my thinking.

A presumably and fairly intellectual individual wrote this letter. However, his ending statement ruined any substance of moral to the letter. I'm saddened to see that people dismiss the trash for the greater good. This is not "all's well...that ends well." Rather, I am left with a sickening feeling.

I'm sorry Leisure....you obviously had a negative reaction to this, glad to know one isn't alone.

I did vote for Travis Childers when he ran for Trent Lott's open seat in 2008.

...as compared to the Democrats who pick centrist candidates? Only Kucinich was farther left than Obama in 2008.

I would have voted for Evan Bayh had he stayed in, but it will be a cold day in you know where before a Blue Dog Dem wins the party nomination and he had to drop out before the Iowa Caucuses.

Palin is a real Republican.-enigma Why is she always shrieking "Tea party"? Face it, I hear conservatives/tea party, say they are different than Republicans. Yes there is a conservative party.......Why so few members? They know they have to cling to the Republican party to have any chance at all. Where are all of these conservative principals? IMO, they are parasites of the Republicans.

I don't think Christie will get past the primary. He has angered too many in the party. Go to right wing websites and they don't have much good to say about him. If by chance he did make it and picked a good VP it would be a tough battle and a good one. But in the long run Hiliary will win.

Also, barring the most unforeseen calamity, Christie will most certainly be the Republican candidate in the next Presidential election.

I say he is the easy winners unless he picks a far-right VP.
