I assume you're referring to Obama.

Remember: he only led for the last few months of the race. He was lucky. Hillary bore the brunt of the attacks as the frontrunner for over a year.

That pretty much ends his quest for higher office, right?
Snowden is going to unload on Hillary. Better pick someone else.

Wasn't she the one that said she wasnt getting out of the primary and cited RFK's assassination as backup to her argument?

The presidential race is long, long, long. It's less of a contest about ideas as much as it's contest to see who can gaffe the least. HRC is as good as it gets in that regard. She's been the target of the right since the 80s.



You sound scared

What the hell is this?

Is advocating for small and limited gov't so shocking that doing that is named after the person doing it?

Who is more likely to stand up to the scrutiny of a year and a half campaign.?

A 1 term senator from KY (elected in 2011) with no other political experience or a former Secretary of State, senator from New York, a presidential candidate, the first lady of U.S. and Arkansas who has been in the spotlight for 40 years?

I agree with this 100%, but why do you think so many folks on this board hold Obama's lack os experience against him while giving a pass to Paul and Cruz who will both have less poltical experience in 2016 than Obama had in 2008.

It's kind of like Republicans screaming bloody murder over a healthcare reform bill originally designed by the Heritage Foundation and first implemented by the former GOP nominee for the President of the United States. It's strange.

I see where you're going, but Paul seems to have improved a great deal as a political pugilist since that Rachel Maddow interview in 2010, he should only get better over the next couple of years.

Disagree with you there; especially when that experience is littered with fraud and terrible execution, such as it is with HRC:
- Insider trading scandal that has been somewhat muted but never fully investigated
- Did not do anything significant as a Senator in NY other than plan her run for the presidency
- Absolute shitshow in as Secretary of State

Would still like to see someone that is a former governor, these senators don't know how to balance a budget but given Paul's stances I'd give him a shot at that....

We've seen this movie play out before in 2008 and the half term senator from Illinois still bitchslapped the other candidate that had most of those advantages.

Both Hilary and McCain.

I don't see how Rand Paul could lose to Hilary. Hilary comes off shady, and I doubt she can get the nudge in swing states. At least Rand Paul is somewhat consistent. (unlike most R's and D's)

Democrats should be looking for a Gavin Newsom type person to rise up. Maybe one who didn't bang his friend's wife.

I missed this.

If you voted for Obama even once, you can't say this at all and expect to dodge allegations of hypocrisy.

If Rand can filibuster for 13 straight hours and still manage to keep it on topic for a significant majority of the time without hanging himself, he's got this covered.

I think he was talking specifically about the likelihood of gaffes of Paul vs Hillary when the bright lights are on.

if Rand Paul can't win in this climate against a skeleton known as HRC, AND after the absolute failure that was the HRC era as SOS and the ACA, then the GOP's quest for higher office has ended
