Hillary Clinton in 2016: Be Afraid, Republicans

Run, Hillary, Run!

With early numbers like I’m seeing, she could have the longest coattails of any recent candidate.  And with the Republican gerrymandering, it’s going to take a lot of long coattails to win back the house.

It would also be so, so gratifying to see the GOP Southern Strategy, that they have used since Nixon,  finally collapse.  A Democrat winning Texas and Kentucky?  Still a long shot, but oh so sweet a possibility….

Message to the Republican Party: be afraid, be very afraid.

Hillary Clinton stands atop of the Democratic 2016 scrum, set to resume where Bill left off. A second Clinton candidacy would likely put the white vote in play and jeopardize the GOP’s dominance in the Old Confederacy. Recent polls put Hillary ahead of possible Republican challengers in vote-rich Texas and in Kentucky, home of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Tea Party favorite Rand Paul.

Unlike her husband, Hillary is personally disciplined. Unlike Barack Obama, she has demonstrated an ability to connect with beer-track voters across the country.

Hillary Clinton Hits Record Favorability, Poll Shows Wide Support For 2016 Candidacy

Run, Hillary, Run!

This would be so very wonderful…..

And I’m glad to see she is finally get the respect and appreciation she deserves….

From the HuffingtonPost.com:

A decision by Hillary Clinton to run for president in 2016 would be welcomed by most Americans, according to a Washington Post/ABC poll released Wednesday.

As she prepares to step down as secretary of state, Clinton has a lifetime high favorability rating of 66 percent, according to the Post/ABC poll, with less than a third of respondents holding unfavorable views. Two-thirds of Americans approve of her job performance in the Obama administration.

That goodwill translates into broad support for Clinton to make a second run at the presidency in four years, with 57 percent supporting her candidacy.

The demographics of her support provide a sense of what could be a key constituency for a Clinton campaign: women, especially those who are younger or middle-aged. Two-thirds of women, including 75 percent of those under age 50, say they would like to see her run. Among men, her candidacy is supported by a narrower 49 percent
