Who do you think the Repubs will nominate? in 2016?

Now that this election seems to be over just some debates. Once the viral "We Are the 47%" campaign with old people, vets, families is released in entirety it'll just be another nail. Marco Rubio I think has the best shot.

Are the World Series, Superbowl and NBA championship over too (I leave out the NHL because there may not be a Stanley Cup next year)? Please tell me who wins so I can clean up.

Thanks.

I think (and fear) it will be Paul Ryan. That's of course if 'Ol Mittens doesn't win the presidency this time around.

I don't think she's going to pass up the chance to be the first female president, even if it's just for one term. I'd put money on it.

I don't know. If she ran and won, she would be the second oldest at inauguration in history, behind Reagan.

And society looks at older men differently than older women.

and Reagan is the best president in the history of the world, so I don't think that matters.

besides, women live longer than men

it's just my guess though, but I feel it's the reason she will step down as SoS for the next 4 years if Obama wins. Gives her time to rest and form a new campaign.

Hillary's perfect time was '08. Was bad luck for her that Obama came along when he did. She wins that nomination easily if it was, say, the '04 dem group instead.

There may not be another female with a chance to be president for a long time. Anyone on the radar?

Don't blame me. I voted for her in the Democratic Primary.

As far as who would run for the GOP nomination that would be:

Paul 'Eddie Munster' Ryan

If Romney loses this year, doesn't that make Ryan spoiled goods?

He ends up like Palin, Kerry, Edwards, McCain, Gore, Lieberman, Kemp, Quayle, Dukakis, etc. I think Nixon was the last presidential candidate to make a comeback from a defeat. Dole got the nom in '96 and ended up losing the election.

Man, in retrospect, they're really isn't anyone who won't be old as dirt representing the Republicans that I can think of. Everyone is pushing 100.
