Don’t get me wrong; I will probably vote for Hillary – I think she would make an outstanding President.  

The problem is that with only one viable Presidential contender on the Democratic ticket we are taking a large chance of a Republican candidate sweeping into office as the ‘only alternative.’   

The voting public is fickle.   It only takes one misstatement in front of the press (Romney’s 47%)

 or one unfortunate photo op (Howard Dean) to turn off the voting public and doom a candidate.  

If we run Hillary as the presumed winner nominee without a viable alternative and some scandal or questionable action occurs (and with Hillary she is even vulnerable if Bill is brought under the spotlight) it could sink her candidacy resulting in the voting public turning to Republicans.

Democrats need a viable alternative to Hillary running for the nomination in 2016.

the Ol'Buzzard


  1. How about Jackiesue Denney? I hear she is a firecracker! I'm sure there would never be any misstatements or unfortunate photo incidents with her.

  2. I was thinking the same thing. I don't think there will be a Democrat in the White House, after all is said and done.

  3. I have been feeling the same way, that there needs to be others in the running. Hillary is sucking all the oxygen out of the room when all you hear is Hillary this, Hillary that, with her being talked about as the presumptive nominee. There has to be others, but who has the name recognition and the ability to raise a BILLION dollars?? It'll take that much and more to run a campaign. (The FuckingKochBrothers have pledged to raise almost a billion to use against whoever the Democratic candidate is!!)

  4. I'd run for president...except for that one little shooting incident..

  5. Progressives want Elizabeth Warren to run. The idea is not so much what's the best thing for the country but now that the blacks got their man in the house it's the women's turn.

  6. I just really, really want our choices to be other than another Clinton and another Bush....*sigh*
