In a CNN report, a revelation by John McCain should be something that our friends from the right side of the isle should look at. Here is what he said…
“I would bet, my friend, as much as I hate to admit it, that right now - this is why we have campaigns – but right now, if the election were tomorrow, Hillary Clinton would most likely be the president of the United States,” the Arizona Republican said.
At one time not so long ago, she had a formidable candidate across the isle, namely Chris Christie. But do to the scandals that he faces at this time, and the possibility that he may even have step down as Governor of New Jersey because of the bridge scandal, Christie has become a most unlikely candidate to run against Hilary. The fact is that
Clinton has not decided to run yet, or at
least she hasn’t stated it. If she were to announce it now, then the Republican
attack ads would immediately commence, and it is just too early before the Republican and
Democratic primaries for an announcement to be made.
Surely she would be looked at as the front runner, with her record and experience in political life. She was almost successful in her run to secure the nomination for President but Barack Obama beat her in the primary race. With Barack gone, there really is no one on the left side of the isle that may be willing to run against her.
But to highlight her competitors from the right, the Republicans have candidates such as Peter King, Michael Kinlaw and Josue Larose, who have already announced that they will be running for U.S. President. Do you think that any of these three candidates have a chance to win against Hilary Clinton and become president in 2016? Give me a break!
More likely to contend for the Presidency from the right may be Ted Cruz, Jon Huntsman, Bobby Jindal, Rand Paul, Tim Pawlenty, Rick Perry, Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan, Rick Santorum, and Scott Walker. Now out of any of these Republicans just mentioned, who would have a clear shot at Hilary?
The radical, and most unlikable Ted Cruz, a junior Senator who is not even liked by members of his own party, most likely will not have a chance against
What he has proven in the past is that he can cause grave damage to his own
party so that he can push his own agenda, not regarding what he does to his own
Marco Rubio, the famous Senator who took his infamous glass of water in the middle of his speech, most likely will run, but he again, will not have much to run on, other than he will have the Hispanic community behind him from the south.
Rand Paul, another candidate that most likely will run. He hasn’t formally stated that he would run, but he is acting like he is going to run. He seems poised to run for President, although due to his record concerning the lack of support for the unemployed, along with being against everything the Democrats stand for, will make him not-electable. The candidates from the Tea Party should all but eliminate the Republican party from beating Hillary Clinton during the next election.
If Hillary Clinton does not run, then the most likely candidate for President will be the Vice President Joe Biden. He has shown interest in running, and he definitely has the resume to perform as President, as he has been the acting vice-President for the last 6 years now.
As for the Democratic Party, there are already three declared candidates. They are Willie Carter, Dough Shrefler, and Robby Wells. As with the hope-to-be’s of the Republicans, they wouldn’t have a chance to be nominated if Hillary did decide to run.
Other Democrats to possibly run are as follows:
Earl Ray Tomblin
