Who Does America Really Want In 2016?


Clinton Warren

A few days ago, Huffington Post reported that Hillary Clinton was on the unofficial campaign trial and in her speeches she was sounding more and more like Massachusetts Democratic Senator, Elizabeth Warren.

Today, CNN is reporting that Veep Joe Biden gave a speech on Friday in South Carolina where he was channeling the words and themes of Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.

When you think of it, the two announced “unannounced” Democratic candidates for the highest office in America are Clinton and Biden. Yet where are they getting their talking points? Hmm, Senator Elizabeth Warren.

Why not cut out the middle man, or woman?

Think about it. Who really is the voice of the Democratic party for 2016? It could be Clinton or Biden. But are they really just Charlie McCarthys and EW is Edgar Bergen? More and more it’s becoming quite clear that the Clinton baggage of the trumped up Benghazi campaign are meant to embarrass her and turn off voters over a Hillary C run in 2016.

And let’s face it. Much of her allure is not strictly her experience. Forget being First Lady. It’s a ceremonial position. If it wasn’t, it would be an elected or appointed position. Her years of being a Senator and being Secretary of State are very important, valuable experience. So she’s got that hands down. But she comes, sadly with a lot of baggage. And now the upcoming Benghazi hearings will tarnish her very stellar reputation more — even if everything she did was  by the book, according to Hoyle.

What really sets her aside from all of the potential Republicans running for the top office is that she herself is a woman. Go poo-poo that all you want, but it’s true. And if you are honest with yourself and realize that, consider this– so is Elizabeth Warren. No one, not even Clinton, knows more about big business, Wall Street and all of the consumer rip-offs that the public faces daily. No one. Clinton’s not even on the same page. She’s too often rubbing shoulders with big money. She’s, as they say, “beholden.'”

That puts a bit more focus on Joe Biden should Hillary falter. And let’s face it. Joe’s more often the punch line to a joke than a serious contender to lead this country. He’s a good man, but we need a great leader. And Joe’s two specialties before he was elected Veep were putting his foot in his mouth and  foreign relations. Right now, even with Syria, Russia, Ukraine, Iran and other hotbed spots around the world, the US citizenry is more interested in what’s happening here with our economy – jobs, minimum wage, income inequality, unemployment benefits, and equal pay.

Where else should we be looking if those are the biggest issues? There’s really only one answer. And she’s available — just not pushing. Even when asked point blank, she’s got the standard answer down — she’s not looking for the Presidency but rather what she can do as a senator.

Why settle for second best, Clinton and Biden? Why not go to the horse’s mouth — Warren. Both Clinton and Biden are trying to channel her and her thoughts. Why not just get the real thing, the real McCoy? Perhaps it’s time for a few more Democrats to start thinking about a draft Warren movement while there’s still time. We could do a lot worse and I’m not sure Clinton or Biden would be any better for America, nor any more electable.

Cory Booker Is In Da House — Well, In Da Senate


Cory Booker

Today Cory Booker was sworn in as the newest U.S. senator. He’s only the fourth Black elected senator in US history. And he promises to be a great asset to the floundering political scene in Washington.

Booker, 44, was sworn in at noon by Vice President Biden. With his arrival, the Senate Democratic caucus now includes 55 senators — 53 Democrats and two independents — and Republicans have 45 seats. Take a look at history:


The Perfect Candidate For President 2016


Campaign 2016

Talk of the 2016 Presidential candidates is open and clear, despite the fact that Rachel Maddow has banned it from discussion on her show until after the mid-term election in 2014. It really can be silly talking about it so soon after we’ve just completed our last general election.

But I’m with a lot of pundits and am impatient. I like listening to all of the chatter and blathering. Already some names have exploded on the scene and some have already started to fizzle. Burnout and sharper observation have begun to winnow the list. It started with these kinds of names:

Democrat: Clinton. Biden.

Republican: Cruz, Rubio, Bush, Lee, Paul, Christie, Cantor and Ryan. Even a resurgence by Michele Bachmann, Louie Gohmert, possibly McConnell just bring me to tears.

It’s obvious the Republicans have a void in finding people American can get behind.

So I did a little unscientific survey to see who would people like to have leading us. Who is that man or woman who can inspire us to be the best that we can be? There must be someone.

And there is. Look at a partial his list of accomplishments:

He has won the lifetime achievement award, twice.

His business card simply says “I’ll call you.”

Cuba imports cigars from him. 

Mosquitos refuse to bite him purely out of respect. 

Once while sailing around the world, he discovered a short cut.

When he drives a new car off the lot, it increases in value.

 He is fluent in all languages, including three that only he speaks.

His beard alone has experienced more than a lesser man’s entire body.

On every continent in the world, there is a sandwich named after him.

 He lives vicariously through himself.

If he were to punch you in the face, you would have to fight off the urge to thank him.

 He once had an awkward moment, just to see how it feels.

When it is raining, it is because he is thinking of something sad.

You know the guy. He’s the Most Interesting Man in The World. See for yourself:

There is no doubt he would win hands down, taking a majority of both parties. There’s only one problem; he’s too smart to be a Republican.

Don’t let the accent fool you. He’s more American that Rafael Ted Cruz. This man was born in the US, but he’s a citizen of the world.

If Hillary decides to run, it’ll be because he told her to. And if she asked him to be in his cabinet, he’d be named, Secretary of Everything. What else would call the Most Interesting Man In The World?!
