She'd be a good choice, or better than a Sanders-clone anyway.

She's young. She's been something other than a professional politician.

But what they need, more than a new face, is a swing back towards something resembling a helping hand, rather than a hand out. A swing back towards a more centrist viewpoint would be useful, too. They shouldn't be ignoring large swathes of the country because they know they won't vote for them.

I thought Kanye was going to run on the democratic ticket.

The current nepotism will demand Chelsea Clinton takes the reign.


I hope so.

That would be so much fun!

Shouldn't we focus on the message and not the party of the messenger?


This identity politics is bullsh#t.

Me too. I think they are grooming her for the position. Then, when she looses in the primaries, the party will go against the will of the people and put her in there nonetheless.

Elizabeth Warren will get there first. By the time Chelsea is old enough to run, her parents will be on the other side of the grass and no one will pay her much attention. They should be buried in fire resistant asbestos pajamas.

I refuse to vote for anyone who is a Clinton, Bush, or Obama.

Hillary will run again in 2020. She won this election with the popular vote, she should be president. The flyover states are over represented, millions more voted for HRC than for Trump.


That old "popular vote" again! Try studying some history.

She may have received more popular votes but she didn't win the election and shouldn't be president. The flyover states are not over represented; they are represented. Should the state of California require citizenship for voters, her vote count will change dramatically.

We need to chuck both parties into the ocean...

But she would be a good choice assuming she can withstand the backroom politics of the DNC.. I consider myself conservative but would have little heartburn voting for her... she strikes me as a pretty centrist candidate.

I hope Pocahontas runs... seeing her crash and burn would be almost as enjoyable as the Hillary show that lost to Donald Fricking Trump...

Also there are more than the Libertarians and Greens... get out there find one, get in while its building and help steer it in the direction you want it to go.

Did you know, or even bother to look, at the results of the election state by state?

Where she who I shall never name again won, she got the electoral college votes. Why, you ask? Because she won that states popular vote. Gee, how about that.

Where Trump won the popular vote, he won the electoral college votes.

The national vote mean exactly diddly squat. Civics 101. It worked exactly as it was designed to by people far smarter than, by all appearances, anyone workin' today.

Of course, if you really didn't know that, I'd be surprised. Better luck next time.

I've always voted Green Party with the exception of voting for Obama.

While I'd love to see a Green Party that is viable and competitive with the current oligarchy, I'm kinda suspecting Tulsi Gabbord will be big this next term. She had something to love for both sides of our nation.

Spot on!

The electoral college mathematically favors rural populations.

The majority of the country that lives in high population centers is being held politically hostage by low population density areas.

The electoral college is almost a direct reflection of.. if you own more land.. your vote counts more.

The majority of people in the majority of counties in the majority of states. . . voted for Trump.


Really folks.

You need to either get over it or seek professional help.

I'd be interested to see if the Election was handled like some states in the primaries whereas the state's votes can be split based on the % of the vote.

That would make it interesting.

Would Trump still have won?

Quick tutorial in history.

The United States of America is a Constitutional Republic, not a mob ruled Democracy!

Those of you who support mob rules are truly ignorant of history and how it repeats itself! Our founders were a hell of a lot smarter than the cultural Marxists who turned truth into a narcissistic state of fascism!

Thats a Republican lie. The majority of the people voted for HRC.
This isn't over, the results will be challenged before this term is over.
She hasn't lost yet.
