Hillary is weaker than she was in 2012, when she lost to a celebrity with no experience. Now she has to run on her non-existent record and answer questions about her political calculations on things like gay marriage.

I hope she runs, though. She's basically John McCain in a pant suit. She's a pretty good firewall for the Republicans against the far left. Having her in office couldn't be any worse than the last two presidents... It will just mean more of this same political environment, and for a libertarian that means sweet, sweet gridlock. When the Federal Government lies dormant, the states will pick up the slack, and as we've seen from gay marriage and marijuana, that's where the real solutions are for this nation.
and what demographic do you see switching to a right winger like rand paul? Asians,Hispanics,maybe African Americans? Who? How about women?
