I'm not sure I want Hillary to be POTUS. She's done a bang-up job as Secretary of State, but she's a political lightning-rod. Too much Bubba-era baggage in the hands of right-wing propagandists. Who wants Vince Foster and Rose Law Firm billing records to be thrown against the video wall every day for two years before any votes are cast?
Michelle is a political dream. She does the crowd-control thing even better than Barack does. But she's very light on actual policymaking experience, and super-vulnerable there.
So Warren is still the top get. I think she'd rule the primaries and then she'd stuff the "socialist" taunts back into the taunters' faces during the general, same as she sent Scott Brown packing.
And if the GOP thinks they're going to win by gaining minority or women's votes by running a woman or minority, then they don't understand their base at all. It'd fracture even before the first primary, and then it'd be a real 3-party race, and the Dems would completely own the plurality in the general.
Pencil in Democratic Party presidents until 2025, and plan accordingly.
P.S. America elected a black man President, _again_. Got to love a country that does that after living through its history.
Let's see... would you rather have somebody that runs up the budget and gives it to the little guy, or somebody who runs up the budget and gives it to the big guy? Despite what they say, neither party is for smaller government, but at least one is truthful about it.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
With a combination of higher taxes for the most prosperous among us, and believe me they live like modern day royalty, and cut backs in the military and some social services we can achieve parity. combine that with passive revenue streams dedicated to paying down the gov't deficit, and requiring the Fed to raise interest rates by 2 percent we will see a much stronger dollar and lower debt. Social services, universal healthcare can run at a small loss.
I truly believe Bush will go down in history as the worst president in modern times. Now, did anyone out there see the D'Souza movie 2016? I don't fully buy his premis but he makes some interesting points. I hope he is wrong but, like many other investors, I am taking steps to safeguard my assets. LOL for both Dems. and Republicans.
