I'm speechless. I like them both. And both are proven, capable leaders. I suppose one could argue that Clinton has a blemish with Benghazi. But Congress cut the State Dept. Budget. When you cut funds, everything suffers -- including security. Some might consider the fact that Christie once worked for Bernie Madoff to be a negative. Rumor has it, that was the deal-breaker that kept him off the GOP's national ticket in 2012. If the election were today, between these two, I couldn't decide!

Hillary Clinton in 2016 will be too old. Plus, she's been a senator, first lady, and Secretary of State already. We need a new face in the Oval Office. Granted, Reagan was old, but I believe that Christie would be a fine president.

Eww I couldn't pick either one. They're both disgusting liars. One is a fake republican and the other a socialist commie.

I think Clinton v. Christie would be the closest election since 2000!

@Haroush You do realize that the right wing isn't only tea part and conservative; it's also MODERATE.
