    If she runs, then she most certainly would not announce a campaign before a Republican made an announcement.

    She can wait as long as she wants because their is no other democrat as powerful as she. She can sit back and watch how this whole debacle over the debt and middle eastern affairs plays out before she announces anything.

  3. Wake up People!

    She can wait as long as she wants to. We just had a Presidential election less than a year ago. I understand the GOP focusing on 2016, because they have been trying to ignore the fact that President Obama put the smack down on Willard, but why is the MSM so focused on whether she runs or not??

    Keep em guessing Hillary!!

    Why is Hillary Clinton preventing people from photograhing her or recording what she talks about at her speeches? What is she afraid of? What is she hiding? She wants to hold high office but doesn't want people to know about her statements, opinions and positions? Come clean Hillary and stop trying to control everything and keep the American people in the dark.

    I hope until the election is over we don't need another Clinton in the White House.

    Clinton did say when the 4 Americans were killed it was her fault.

    I must be having deja-vu I could have sworn yesterday I saw story on CNN's Political Ticker with a picture of Hillary Clinton on the cover of the New Yorker. Maybe its ground hound day. Over and over. Or maybe CNN is being paid by the New Yorker. Conservative woman never receive the same sort of free publicity.

    What difference does it matter how long she waits? Her supporters will be with her whether she announces today, tomorrow, next week, next month, next year. If she is nominated, I'll vote for her. If not ... well, I will still vote straight Democratic ticket.

    I can't of any time in the future, let alone 2016, where I would vote Republican. As far as I'm concerned the GOP has burnt too many bridges, and I'm too frustrated, too angry, too filled with one insult after another directed my way to keep jogging up that hate-filled hill of GOP malcontent.

    She can wait as long as she wants. There is no one candidate out there better qualified than Hillary.
    @donna and. ed1, that's all your thugs have? LMAO!!!
    An aside to Donna, from your post time I am surprised your husband lets you, the little woman, use a computer.

    ------------------
    Why don't you pay her $500,000 to find out? She'll be glad to fill you in on how Republicans have reneged on their own values.

    They all do it – both sides of the aisle and the guy who had his cell phone confiscated for failing to STOP photographing her AFTER he was told to stop was a rightwing operative, so regardless of his pathetic excuse, his motive was anything but pure.

    She can, and should, wait as long as she wants to. Why give all the idiots like donna and Ed1 a lot of extra time to " rake her over the coals ". No hurry Hillary. You are the most qualified to run.

    There is no rush January 2015 is soon enough. This none stop campaigning by politicans is annoying and a waste of time that should be spent doing the job they have already been elected to do.

    Has She gotten back to the families of the 4 dead Americans yet? She said she would. She lied. I guess they don't matter anymore. She knowingly lied to these people as they stood beside the caskets of their loved ones. Hillary Clinton is one cold heartless creature we do NOT need in the White House.

    Hillary Clinton will not be able to hide and conceal herself forever at her speeches. We WILL get video and audio of her to make sure the American people are fully informed of the monster that wants to be our president.

    4. syria in 2-3 year civl war, gas weapons used.
    5. iran proceeding with nuclear bomb.
    6. north korea still firing missiles, restarting nuclear plants

    well, those are her accomplishements, if you can call them that.

    I think Lois Lerner and HC are hiding out in the same cave together. Anything so as not to answer questions about their "performance" in the last year. We've got 3 years to go...plenty of time for the chickens to come home to roost. "What difference does it make?" won't go away.

    That right there is the problem with American politics, I have NEVER voted a straight republican ticket!!! But that would be because I actually look at the PERSON and their positions versus what party they belong to!! Oh and a side note, yes I have seen many insults thrown your way but be real, I have seen you throw just as many probably even more at them too! Point is you should vote on a person's policies not what party they belong to and until Americans decide to do the right thing we will continue with this ultra partisan divide this country has. In fact I think the only way to end this partisan divide is to do away with ALL parties and ONLY run on your values and policies alone!

  22. great grandma K

    She has "been running" ever since she left the White House. Even before. Her decision to stay with Billy Bob during and after his disgrace while president was because he promised to use all his connections to see that she was one day in the Oval Office as President. Will have to wait to see who/what she has under the desk! God help us-and he is the only one that can.
