Warren won't run. Clinton's the only real alternative. And Kristen Gillibrand is NOT far left. She's a centrist.

I don't care if Warren said she won't won, I still support her the most.

Sanders/Warren would make my head explode with progressive joy.

I support Warren over Clinton. Heck it Jeb Bush ran against Warren (assuming Johnson doesn't run) I'd vote Warren.

I can't stand Hillary at all. After watching "The Inside Job" about the economic crash I really dislike the Clintons as much as the Bushes.

Well, the Bush family are a bunch of warmongering, corrupt, and ignorant fools. The Clintons are calculating, war-wary, oligarchs who are highly intelligent. It's like comparing a very stupid version of Stalin with a very clever version of Putin. Both such, but I'd rather have the one that didn't commit genocide. If I had my druthers, Clinton wouldn't get the nod, but I'll vote for her before anyone the GOP can wrangle up at this stage. The GOP needs to lose in 2016. If they do, they will actually be forced to reorganize and stop being so radical. A democratic victory is essential in 2016 for both true conservative Republicans AND Democrats. 4 years of Hillary would show the nation that Democrats operate the same economic principals as the GOP, but they lack the overt xenophobia. The GOP would then reevaluate their policies and in 2020, they would offer a true populist position, and they would win, and rightfully so. But only if they are willing to hang the establishment and get new blood.

All these people suck. Eh, I guess I won't be voting these year either.
The_Immortal_Emris says2014-07-25T11:22:39.7961583-05:00
VOTE. If you don't vote, you can't complain about politics. VOTE, damnit. What if we end up with another GWB because millions decide they are disenfranchised.

Not voting is worse than voting for the worst person you can think of.
AdamKG says2014-07-25T16:27:47.2363989-05:00
Democracy can't truly work unless if everybody votes. If you don't vote you don't have the right to complain later. @The_Immortal_Emris I am not too familiar with Gillibrand, but I know she is often considered a progressive in the Senate. She was more of a centrist when she was in the House, but suddenly became more left-wing after entering the Senate.

If Hillary can't even get 3 star reviews on her new book, then she probably won't be able to do well running a country.

I'd like to see Al Gore in the list, but he doesn't want :/
The_Immortal_Emris says2014-08-04T10:49:55.7586120-05:00
Hillary's book is very dry. It's not surprising people who aren't dedicated to examining the nuances of global relations would not take well to it.
