Dems Already Daydreaming of a New President

With the next presidential election still three-and-a-half years away, NBC reports Democrats in “a frenzy” over Hillary Clinton’s potential candidacy, while Maureen Dowd and Chris Matthews see her victory as inevitable.

This obsessive speculation so early in the cycle is unprecedented: at the start of second terms for George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, press and public focused on the re-elected president’s plans, not the prospects of his possible successor. Hillary-mania actually reflects the weakness of Obama, not the strength of Clinton: Democrats are so disappointed in the incumbent’s second term initiatives that they prefer fantasizing about future progress under a more dynamic, unifying leader. When day dreams about a new president generate more excitement in his own party than the current leader’s efforts to restrict guns and hike taxes, it indicates a term that’s already failed before it’s barely begun.

    The Dems are already acting like it’s a done deal that Hillary will be the next President. God help us all if they’re right.

    The question is this: will those dumb 53 millions Americans, who voted for an incompetent, irresponsible and anti-American President, vote again for a “old witch” (will be almost 70 yrs. old), liar (see Benghazi), crook (see the $1000 dollar transformed in a $100,000 overnight), lack of character (see the FBI filegate), Travelgate, Whitewater stuff, etc.? I have lost all my respect and confidence in the American people in 2012 elections. The 50 some millions American are duped, deceived and totally gullible to a Communist type of propaganda.

    Only the “looneys” think Hillary is a shoe in or anything else. Americans have deep Clinton fatigue. She is troubling at any level..her past will haunt her at every turn.

    I do not see Hillary getting the nomination, much less the presidency. Except for the left-wing crazies on MSNBC, I don’t see the Democrats backing her. There are other potential candidates with broader appeal and much less negative history. On the other hand, I hope I’m wrong about her getting the nomination. The Republicans will have a much easier election if she is the Dems candidate.
