    Condoleeza Rice for the GOP nomination is a compelling choice.  Imagine the African American and women voters she can potentially steal from the Democratic stronghold.

    I would take Hillary Clinton over Joe Biden.

    Donald Trump as President of the United States? That’s a scary thought.

    I guess people won’t elect anyone that reminds them of the Bush administration (Condoleezza Rice/Jeb Bush), and I don’t think Hillary wants to do this job since she’s stepping down as Secretay of State.

    I think Chris Christie has a decent chance, but I’m rooting for the great Joseph Biden…

    I can see Hilary taking another stab at it. With her stepping down as S.O.S., that would give her enough time to have her committee ready to go for  the 2016 campaign trail.

    All for Hillary trying again.  As a resident of Louisiana, the very idea of Bobby Jindal getting anywhere near the white house conjures some of the most horrific nightmares ever.

    I wouldn’t mind Rand Paul from the GOP, as he’s probably the closest to a Libertarian candidate we would get. On the Democrat’s side, Hillary and Elizabeth Warren would also be amazing choices.

    I don’t know much about Rand Paul, but if he’s anything like his Father, then I would support his GOP nomination. I’m a pretty big fan of Dr. Paul – he is such a smart guy, rooted in common sense, and he kills other Republicans in the debates.  If only he got more coverage and respect….

    Being born in 1983, Patrick Murphy would be too young to be on the ticket in 2016.

    I think prevailing Republicans and Democrats are going to be ones hailing from states which are nowadays a part of their base.
