    Rove and the rest of the Republicans are not dumb. Even though she hasn't officially declared that she's running, Mrs. Clinton is being considered as a threat to the Republican Party. A threat that must be removed ASAP. This will backfire. The Republicans don't have a candidate that will prove to be a capable rival to Mrs. Clinton, unless they enlist the aid of Condoleza Rice.

    We know what happen there and that's the problem with hiring Hillary. Bills problem is also honesty. Honesty is the best policy, not an option.

    Rove is wrong about a lot, but not the Clintons unless Bill lied to him. The only thing inevitable about HRC is her history.

    Why is the media so infatuated with this disingenuous-dishonest-power-monger?

    Could it be that Free-Traitors and Foreign interests own and control our media?

    We all knew back when that whole Monica scandal was going on, that she must have made a deal with the Dems for promises of power in the future in return for her standing by "her husband" Bill's side.

    You know the problem in trying to elect good leaders for The United States of America has nothing to do with the color or gender of our politicians. It's our politician's, from both parties, lack of honesty and the lack of willingness to do right by the US citizens that they're elected by and should be representing.

    Clinton is the one who opened up the trade floodgates with Communist China and both Bill and Hillary were actively involved during their visit to China.

    Bill Clinton, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman nor did I have unethical trade relations with that communist Chinese government." – And how's that been working out for the American People and the Real American Economy?

    Bill and Hillary Clinton are two of the biggest FREE-TRAITORS around.

    Hey you stinking Free-Traitors: The AMERICAN PEOPLE can see what's been and is still being done to them!

    Hillary is all the Democratic party has. Assuming she remains in good health she will be the nominee. My question is what happens if a similar situation as occurs in the House Primary in N.C. occurs? They don't have anyone on the bench.

      Well there is the vice president.

      And the governors of New York, Massachusetts and Maryland.

      A former Virginia governor and a former Montana governor are also in the picture.

      Now the reality of things (which the GOP really doesn't want to talk about) is that with the national demographics the way they are... Biden could probably step in if Hillary was knocked out late and still win the presidency. He can't seriously challenge Hillary head to head, but he can step in as an emergency replacement and likely win.

      To be honest, it's going to require something catastrophic (greater then Hillary deciding not to run) for the GOP to win the White House. They might have had a shot if they had championed immigration reform in 2013... but even that is too late now.

    True, there are only Democrat candidate for Presidency in 2016 (at the moment)
    What's wrong with that?

    the truth, the Republican attack Hillary to prevent a victory, they
    Know that Hillary will win.
    Connection to Benghazi, I think that Republican know very well what happened there!!!!

      This is what an incomplete sentence with incomplete logic looks like, complete nonsense!

      Hillary has put a foot in her mouth too many times to even get the democratic nomination, neither will foot in mouth Joe.
