Iowa Wants Hillary In 2016

Iowa Wants Hillary In 2016

How long can Secretary of State Hillary Clinton keep saying no to a 2016 run? Fans continue to clamor for her, and now the evidence is already in that she could potentially win the Iowa caucus in a landslide.

Politico reports, “The 2016 election may be several years out, but Clinton currently holds a massive lead over other possible Democratic candidates in the first-in-the-nation caucus state, according to a Public Policy Polling survey out Thursday. More than half of Democrats 62 percent say they want her as the nominee, followed by 14 percent for Vice President Joe Biden and 4 percent for both Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.”

Biden, who has expressed interest in a run, fairs better once Clinton isn’t included in the choices, although he still doesn’t even garner half of the support she has when the full slate of candidates are offered.

But in the case of the Secretary of State, her popularity seems to grow the more she says no to a run. And luckily, thanks to her need to stay clear of any election looking activities for as long as she is serving, she’s not able to declare her interest in higher office even if she wanted to.

Clinton isn’t serving a second term if President Barack Obama gets reelected. Could it be that she’s not simply ready to get out of public life as she proclaims? For a woman who repeatedly refuses to consider a run, there is an awful lot of image burnishing happening, and you can’t help but wonder if it’s all just a coincidence.

Listen to all the sheeple beating the drum for Hitlery Clinton. If any of you had brains, you'd do some investigating into her corrupt background, most notably her long association with Monsanto and the Council on Foreign Relations.

We have our own problems over here in New Zealand with your government having our Police and Crown prosecutors running around like headless chickens making fools of them selves trying to allow you lot to illegally extradite our very own Kim Dotcom to face your justice system because he apparently has infringed one of your domestic laws, its maybe because we cant keep building enough prisons because every one over here is in one, this is an example of the corruption we have to put with, you have my sympathies.
