Will Hillary lose by a smaller or greater margin than Romney-2012?

Generally, PPT's have stated that the line should skip to the SoS. The real question will be on President Kerry.

What?

The PPT has the constitutional authority and the constitutional responsibility to become President in the event the President, the VP, and the House Speaker become incapable to serve.

Not the SOS.

The constitution was amended to change the line of succession from cabinet to Speaker and PPT, and then cabinet, due to the fact the Speaker and PPT are elected officials, whereas the cabinet members are appointed officials.

I have no doubt whatsoever that, should it become necessary, that the Speaker, and then the PPT, would  carry out their constitutional responsibilities to serve as President.

I completely disagree with your statement.

What do you guys think?

I think you're a Dem hack.

You clearly haven't read his posts on Rockefeller Republicans, then.

I do not believe referring to the Republican field as a "clowncar" is exactly constructive or objective.

As long as the Tea Party has a strong presence in the GOP field, it will be a clowncar.

Well, I have to admit, and I have said on several occasions, that the Republicans must not allow themselves to be driven by the Tea Party.

Every word Paula Jones says in this statement is the absolute truth.

Democrats simply do not want to face the facts or they simply don't care.

Retired Lieutenant General Claudia Kennedy as Secretary of Veterans Affairs.
7  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / If Orrin Hatch succeeded to the Presidency.......... on: May 28, 2015, 02:41:23 pm
As President pro tempore of the Senate, Hatch is third in line to the Presidency.

Hatch would be President until January of 2017, when whoever is elected in 2016 would be sworn in as the new President.

What would be your attitude or reaction to having Hatch as President?

What do you suppose President Hatch would  do in his term? 

Say his term is 18 months.

10  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Jeb Promises to Work With Dems on: May 28, 2015, 02:01:59 pm
Jeb Bush is an extremely intelligent pragmatist who obviously puts the future of the nation ahead of his own political aspirations, and will work with everyone, not just those who vote for him.

It's about time we had such a President as him, who will, finally, unite this nation.

12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How will Hillary weather the various fake scandals? on: May 28, 2015, 01:54:31 pm
The real scandal is the constant obsession with Hillary "scandals".

You simply refuse to face up to the fact that the Clintons are absolutely scandal ridden, power obsessed, and entitlement driven.

What credentials would Bayh even have for that job?

While in the U.S. Senate, Bayh served on the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, the  Subcommittee on Energy, the Subcommittee on National Parks, and the Subcommittee on Water and Power.

From Wikipedia:

On September 11, 2008, Bayh joined the Gang of 20, a bipartisan group designed to promote comprehensive energy reform. During the announcement, Bayh said:

On the seventh anniversary of September 11th, it is deeply troubling that we import more oil from the Middle East today than we did on the day of the attacks. Ensuring families have access to affordable energy is one of the defining challenges of our time, but Washington is stuck. The process to fix this problem has broken down, and we just cant afford that anymore. Im joining this substantial group of Republicans and Democrats to make progress and actually get something done for struggling Hoosier motorists.


So he does have knowledge and legislative experience in the energy field, and has definite ideas and proposals in this matter.

Then again, Evan Bayh will be picked by Hillary Clinton for Vice President anyway, so he will have other responsibilities in a Hillary Clinton administration.   
14  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What might a Hillary cabinet look like? on: May 28, 2015, 01:00:32 pm
Many Presidents have had a cabinet member from the other party,  which shows a willingness to work across party lines.   

I propose a Republican for the Clinton cabinet, former Nebraska Governor and Senator Mike Johanns, and former Secretary of Agriculture, for 2 years, under George W Bush, as  either Secretary of Agriculture or Secretary of the Interior.
15  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What might a Hillary cabinet look like? on: May 28, 2015, 12:20:05 pm
Evan Bayh as Secretary of Energy.

Elizabeth Warren would be a very good pick for any of the following cabinet positions

Attorney General
Health and Human Services
Housing and Urban Development
Labor

For two senior posts

State            Richard Holbrooke
Defense        Wesley Clark


I have terrible news, he died over 4 years ago.

Thank you.  I should do my research better.

Well, he would have made a good Secretary of State.

Then Susan Rice.

Most of the Clinton scandals are not fake, they are very real.

Great resume, but he is 67 years old this year.

Two seniors does not exactly project the image of vibrant and dynamic leadership for the new decade.
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Congrats, Phil: Santorum 2016 announcement coming on Wednesday on: May 26, 2015, 05:27:41 pm
In the famous words of James Carville from 2012

The Republicans aren't going to nominate Santorum for anything, we all know that.
23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Rubio vs. Clinton would be a thriller. on: May 24, 2015, 03:03:53 pm
Rubio, the young, vibrant, bright, energetic, talented leader to lead us into the new decade.

The Republican Obama.

Clinton, the old, worn out, scandal ridden, power obsessed, entitlement driven pol from the past.  

The Democratic Nixon.
24  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Would you ever buy a General Motors vehicle after the 10 year cover up? on: May 22, 2015, 08:50:43 am
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/transport/general-motors/10740862/General-Motors-accused-of-criminal-behaviour-and-cover-up.html

General Motors chief executive Mary Barra came under withering attack for her company's decade-long failure to deal with defective parts linked to fatal crashes, in a hearing where US Senators accused the company of "criminal" behaviour and "a culture of cover-up".


Would you ever buy a General Motors vehicle after the ten year cover up of faulty ignition switches which resulted in deaths and injuries?
