If Gore doesn't run in 2016 then I at least want someone who Al strongly endorses.

You're not suggesting that you think he might, are you Wayne?

I don't think Al expects to run but you never know, stranger things have happened. Hell, in my home stranger things happen about every week.

Dudes, Obama is not going to replace Biden as VP. Biden is going to be on the ticket.

Almost certainly that's true. What I'm not sure about is if Joe Biden intends to run for president in 2016. I'd say there's about a 30 percent chance he will.

He only focusing on 2012 obviously, but when asked about 2016 he's not ruling it out.

Personally, I hope Biden doesn't run in 2016. I like the guy all right, but I think we need someone new. I'm really liking the idea of an Elizabeth Warren candidacy . . .

assuming 2012 is a landslide victory, (and nothing indicates anything to say it won't be and there are no republican surprises like a brockered convention,
once again, it shows how fragile the voting system is (looking at the republican primaries).

results appeared to be totally wrong in Iowa and New Hampshire and Maine
and who knows where else.

Complete major areas of states are not being counted

Justice department should look into it, while it is a democrat justice department head.

And the num-nuts (to quote Chris Christie, like Chris Christie himself on the gay marriage issue. You gotta figure he wants to be president, but has no long term
looking ahead, does he?
He is so beholden on pleasing the tea party (which has proven themselves to be no power, no party and totally repudiated) for 2016???
I would think the republicans would want to create candidates in the center and
attempt to win some bloc of voters, but they don't.

It is so funny watching them compete for what is just 20% of the population and shrinking.

by 2016 and 2018, one thinks gay marriage will be throughout the USA, the way the population and polls show it moving so fast the last few years. It is a civil right, and civil rights are national issues, not states.

And if the election is an Obama landslide, then add up all the billions wasted by the Koch brothers and the two or three other big money men Newt and Sanitorium
big guns are wasting.
It's like the one constant of rightwing radio/media(Rush limbaugh-and the boys)-
they are NEVER correct in their candidates and causes.

Clearest way not to need big money is to show its a waste of money.


I like Elizabeth Warren- but first I want her to win her race, and its no sure thing.
I do not believe she would be a viable candidate if she is not a winning senator.
and any talk of her going further and the people of Mass may wonder if they should vote for someone just wanting a seat for a few years.
Also, Elizabeth has it harder than other candidates- because she is running on changing the system. That means she cannot be stealth like for two years after winning- it means she has to achieve some part of her goals.
While one can use our President as an example in the experience area, to most of the nation and the democrat party itself, he was not known, which helped during the 2008 race.
Most democrats and probably 90% of all liberals know Elizabeth Warren.
So she won't be able to not do anything for two years, to then spend the next two years running for president after not doing anything.
People want to see big things.

It is why I could see her more as Hillary's VP in an historic woman/woman ticket

I don't think Biden is going to find he has any popularity to run his own campaign.
Sometimes I think of Jay Leno's "Jaywalking" skits, and wonder how many people
could even name him if shown a picture.

I do think a woman will be the next President, and the Democrats are very lucky
that there are NO qualified (nut jobs not included in this statement as they are not qualified) high tiered republican women for 2016.
(sorry Sarah, Christie O'D, Michelle Bachmann, etc.)

I still think the republican nominee in 2016 is Jeb's to lose.(as the only "sane"(his team will say it) republican who's team has gotten them 18 years in the white house as president and 26 years on the seated tickets

So the democratic nominee gotta be strong enough to soundly defeat him.

VP Biden is doing a good job where he is, but by 2016, we will have to have a strong, smart and a new face that will appeal to both young and old as President Obama did in 2008. Since, we elected a black man in 2008, mabye the country would be open for a female. Elizabaeth Warren would be perfect if she can win in MA.

Elizabeth Warren could be a contender. We'll have to see is she wins her senate race (I think so) and how she does as a senator. Until 2013 we are way ahead of ourselves in speculating. It might be time for a female leader. Or, with an aging population, maybe an older candidate in good shape is a possibility too.
