so dems are stuck with obama
worse than jimmy carter
Usually a REASON why presidents -from-nowhere are failures.
Never heard or Carter or Clinton before they were elected president
Had heard of Nixon , Reagan
how was clinton a failure?
And how was Nixon not a failure?
Every moon landing on Nixon watch.
Did as well as could have been expected with Nam - LBJs War. (Didnt like his pardon of Lt Calley of My Lai)
Slam-dunk re-election in 1972.
Why would she bother? It would be a waste of time, money and resources and she knows it. Obama probably doesn't want to run either, but his ego won't allow him to quit and of course Soros will see to it that he is well funded.
his era may have been more good than bad... domestic policy better than foreign...hate that he let Bin Laden walk...hate that he didn't really respond to USS Cole or first WTC bombing. Very disappointed in his tainting of the office with his scandolous behavior. But he did have his moments....
Here's a question...if a president fails in any one particular area but is good on many others...did he fail? If so, then they have all failed...
If the money and polls are in her favor and Obama continues to decline on the approval rating scale, Hillary will run. If not, she won't. What she says now is worth about as much as me saying I won't run for President. She doesn't want to wait six more years for her shot.
For the record neither Nixon nor Clinton were failures as President. Both had their ethical problems. Both promoted and accomplished some good stuff.
Would Hillary be a better President than Obama? I thought so in 2008 and I think so now. At the very least I think she would do less harm.
Nixon is consistently ranked lower than Clinton and even Carter.
Carter wasn't nearly as bad as Reagan's attack ads were good.
To the OP: I wonder if HClinton would have been the real washington reformer I wanted in 2008, but I doubt it. Therefore, I don't give a dry crap if she runs or not.
Good for her.
