    Can Anyone Stop Hillary? Why Not? Hillary has Never Won a Competitive Election

    Can anyone stop Hillary, Time asks? Why not.

    Forgotten in the reality distortion field surrounding Ready for Hillary is the simply fact that Hillary has never actually won a competitive election. Hillary’s senate seat in New York was handed to her after Giuliani came down with cancer. If he hadn’t gotten sick, Hillary Clinton would have tried to be the senator from her native Illinois instead and might have prevented Obama from ever getting started.

    Hillary Clinton was so incredibly popular that her otherwise unknown Democratic primary opponent in 2000 managed to take a fifth of the vote.

    ...

    The only ticket she’s running on is “First female president.” If the Republicans were to put up a female candidate, Hillary would literally have no platform, no slogan, no anything.

    Take away the “It’s time for little girls to have a role model” and “It’s time to show a wife and a mother can run the country” spiel and there is nothing in the Hillary box. Zero.

    Can anyone stop Hillary? Anyone can stop Hillary.

    Any female republican candidate would be trashed by the MSM. It's not a done deal, but Hillary has a better chance than probably anyone else of being the next POTUS.

    Christie certainly can beat her.

    None of the far right less than luminary reactionaries from 2008 and 2012 would have a chance against her. The far right can never elect candidates.

    The problem isn't "Can anyone stop Hillary".

    The problem is "Will the GOP finally figure out why they lost in 2008 and 2012?"

    Interesting how the OP decided to exclude this part from his quote;

    If Lazio was beating Hilary and she had to overcome that in order to beat him then how is that not a competive race?

    Then there were the 2008 primaries. She won more than enough of those to remain competitive and make it into a very close call.

    So the premise of the OP is false.

    The question should be, can anyone stop the federal government?

    The federal government will appoint the next president, as they do all others. Remember, Hillary won the popular vote in her own party.

    From my vantage point, she is uniquely qualified to run the Progressive empire.

    Not sure about stopping her. But maybe Bigreb can decelerate her?

    This far out anything can happen. Sometimes it's not good to be the front runner because of the big bull's eye on your back. Hillary has lots of baggage to go with that name recognition.

    No one has as much baggage as Christie!!

    All he needs is a trunk and he can be both candidate and mascot for the GOP.

    Let the 2016 freak show for President begin. I can hardly wait..........NOT!!
