Palmetto State Democrats aligned with former U.S. First Lady/ Senator/ Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tell FITS the immensely popular politician is a “go” for the White House in 2016. In fact Clinton is already reportedly lining up key supporters in early voting states like South Carolina – where she was trounced in 2008 by eventual Democratic nominee Barack Obama.

The 65-year-old Chicagoan – who spent eight years as First Lady, eight years as United States Senator from New York and four years as Secretary of State – would enter the presidential race as the runaway frontrunner (and not just for the Democratic nomination).

Upon leaving her post in the Obama administration, Clinton’s approval rating stood at a whopping 69 percent – while only 25 percent disapproved of her performance. Those are stratospheric numbers in today’s toxic political climate … especially when you consider they include blowback from the infamous Benghazi scandal.

Meanwhile a recent Public Policy Polling survey found Clinton enjoying the support of 64 percent of Democratic primary voters – three-and-a-half times her closest rival. The same poll also showed Clinton with a lead over every “Republican” matched up against her in a hypothetical general election.

Indeed a Clinton candidacy would be such a juggernaut it would likely end the presidential aspirations of U.S. Vice President Joe Biden – who has made it clear he wants the job. On the flip side, Clinton’s decision is also likely to boost the profile of female “Republicans” like U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, New Mexico Gov. Susanna Martinez and S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley – who will be given higher billing on presidential shortlists in light of their gender.

Currently, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) appears to be the early GOP frontrunner …

Speculation about Clinton’s candidacy was stoked earlier this week when her husband – former president Bill Clinton – fielded a question about whether he wanted his old job back.

“I would rather keep doing what I’m doing,” Clinton responded, adding that “I think America will have some very good choices for president (in 2016).”

Another smoke signal came when former Clinton strategist James Carville joined a political exploratory committee dubbed “Ready for Hillary.”

If Margret Thatcher is “The Iron Lady”, Hillary is the “Bovine Lady”. She is fatuous, flatuous, fat and looks much like the south end of a north bound jackass. The truth about Benghazi will eventually get out and those “favorables” will get dinged (but unfortunately won’t crash like they should)

Saints preserve us!

As Gingrich said, the Republicans don’t have anyone of her caliber. They can’t beat her.

Even most conservative women see her as a “victim” and intend to vote for her. Somehow, the ones I talk to think that they will be getting even with Bill for her and vindicating her in some way. This is the exact sort of misguided logic that is destroying the country.

If she runs it over. Democrats will sweep the presidency for 8 more years and by then nothing else will matter. Truly a sad day and watch out, an ever more emboldened Obama will take more risks than ever on this development.

I think she swapped her face and her butt. Damn, it’s hard to tell which end is up, now.

When it comes to a president running a country looks should be far down the list, unfortunately thats not the case. Brains and ability still count though (see Sarah Palin’s chances). We all get old, which decreases your chances of getting laid and giving boners, but it gives you experience and many hard learned lessons.

Sadly, Hillary can neither give us a boner nor make good decisions with regard to our freedom or the welfare of our nation.

WOW……….

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury, this article is another example of how Fitsnews is just like The STATE or the Post and Courier. Just think how this article could have been about coverage of deeper issues involving Mark Sanford or Mrs Busch..?

But…No..!

This site fawns over Hillary instead of asking “blood” questions to Mrs Busch and Mr Sanford.

I predict a minority VP, probably Latino and a Republican party having to fight for a lot more red states.
