She Can Only Lose It, Again
Hillary Clinton - They just have to keep her alive. Keep in mind, this is the fourth straight presidential election where people wonder if she is going to run. She has been protecting her flank by saying ridiculous voting right's stuff to blacks like 1955 Alabama is coming back to prevent a repeat of 2008. Hillary is a terrible campaigner, so she will have to deal a knockout blow quickly if someone like the Wildcard or Flirt is in the race.
Vice President Biden - Courting the Jews. While Clinton was recovering from her "concussion" in spring 2013, Biden spoke before AIPAC (Never AGAIN!) and in front of another Jewish group praised Jewish culture for immense contributions. Without them, we wouldn't have gay marriage he said. Biden has dreamed of the presidency since he came to Washington. This is why he chose VP over Secretary of State in 2008. He knows that part of beating Hillary is having the Jews behind you. Just ask Obama. I do not see him cobbling together the Jewish-black-under 30s coalition that Obama road to battle Hillary.
Governor Cuomo - Current white governor of New York going after guns and being friendly with gays. He also knifed public unions. I do not think it happens for him, which is a shame. He seems more competent than every other option here.
Governor O'Malley - Pushed through gay marriage in 2012. That's it. This guy is a clown.
There are no other governor types, and the party's former governors just out of the political process are far too centrist for the primary voters. Ahem, they are also white men like Cuomo and O'Malley.
The WildcardMayor Bloomberg - If Hillary bows out, I think he wins it. Even if she ran against him, Bloomberg is polished enough, he could take her. Do not count him out. He wants it so badly. He has been everywhere in the invisible primary season. Bloomberg also just blasted Harvard and other universities for being repressive of conservative ideas. He will appear normal to many voters. Watch his moves right after the midterms.
The FlirtSen. Warren - Vagina substitute for Clinton. The OWS sympathizer. Coming out against the banks. Will have short record, but a record of being hard charging for consumers and little guys. Harvard Law and a vagina but none of Clinton's baggage. What more does the cathedral need? Think of a debate before a Super Tuesday where she hammers at Hilary for being in the pocket of TBTF and Bill's administration allowing deregulation non-stop while she throws a reference to occupy or getting railroaded out of the consumer watchdog spot for being too sympathetic to little guys and an enemy of the banks? The base will eat it up. In all seriousness, would you put up with her for four years if she destroyed the TBTF banks? ... You're still thinking about it.
The VP StakesThe Favorite - Senator Tim Kaine. White guy from Virginia. Swing state is what will matter for Clinton. She may worry about having the entire ticket be too odd, but if she does not...
The Ambiguously Gay One - Senator Cory Booker. He is a sharp, charismatic 40-something who just hasn't found the right girl. This spot is if Clinton fears she needs the black vote desperately, but what if the ignorant base voters force him to come out and this backfires on Clinton as blacks stay home rather than support a gay? Booker lost Newark's mayor race the first time.
The Hispanic - Julian Castro - Yes, the minority puppetry is this transparent. An interesting thing is happening with Castro right at the moment. The Obama administration is trying to move him to head up HUD. Lawyer, ceremonial mayor, and now HUD head, wow, what is up with that? Why not run for office in Texas if he is an awesome candidate? The progressive system wants Castro to dig into the Hispanic vote. Problem is, Castro is just a ceremonial mayor of San Antonio. His move to HUD reveals more about Texas than about the left. They need him in a spot that they can then layer gravitas on him, but he cannot win a state wide election. If they thought he had a shot in Texas state wide, he would have run for Congress this year to set up for '16/'18 statewide or versus Cornyn for Senate this year or Cruz in '16 or Abbott in '18. Texas' GOP bench is deep, and George P. Bush will be land commissioner with a future eye on any statewide opening. Selecting Castro for VP in 2016 would be example #5,327 of the decline in the administration of our republic. Not speaking Spanish is the icing on the cake as they will actually be selecting a guy for his skin tone and last name.
This is the circus part because the real work is done behind the scenes. Why else would the progressives control the media, academia and the civil service and leave political positions up in the people's hands?
