Bill Clinton must be salivating at the prospects of his wife becoming the next president of the United States. The stunning implosion of the Republican Party and the inability of the Teahadists to recognize that they literally brought this country to its knees over a law, plus shaved billions off the economy and caused real hardship in many homes across the country for 16 days, is enough to have a real impact at the polls come 2014 and 2016.

Michael Hirsh: “In the innermost sanctum of Clintonland, it is difficult to imagine that Hillary and Bill, two of the savviest politicians in the country, are not pinching themselves to make sure that it’s all real. Perhaps they’re dancing a jig together, or knocking back shots and howling at the moon out of sheer, giddy joy at their good luck. (OK, Hillary’s not howling, but Bill might be.) Or maybe they are just quietly kvelling over the latest turn of events.”

“Because the trend lines are unmistakable, and they’re looking better all the time: If she wants to run in 2016, Hillary Rodham Clinton could have the easiest walk into the White House of any candidate in either party since, well, one has to go back a very long way. Maybe to Reagan in ’84. LBJ in ’64, or Eisenhower in ’52, or even FDR in 1932, 1936 and 1940. The presidency is looking like it’s hers to lose, more than ever.”

Legendary singer Sir Elton John is letting his feelings known about his choice for our next president — Hillary Clinton.

“I’ve always been a big Hillary fan. I hope she’s the next American president,” John told the AP before presenting Clinton with an award from his foundation on Tuesday. “I hope she runs.”

“She’s a great human rights campaigner for people of color, for people of [varied] sexual orientation,” the singer said. “She’s made our fight easier by being such a staunch supporter of AIDS and for people’s human rights.”

The former secretary of state was honored by the Elton John AIDS Foundation for her work in the fight against HIV and AIDS.

Hillary Clinton to Consider 2016 Presidential Bid Next Year

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she would consider a 2016 presidential run sometime next year, the Newsday reports.

Hillary Clinton said: “I want to think seriously about it. I probably won’t start thinking about it until sometime next year.”

She admitted that a presidential run is “something on a lot of people’s minds, and it’s on my mind as well.” I would prefer to see Hillary Clinton run than Joe Biden, who I don’t think would win.

Orson Scott Card: Obama Could Turn Urban Gangs into Personal Police Force

The right wing conspiracy theorists are still out in force. Orson Scott Card worries President Obama will turn urban gangs into his personal police force. What?

Where will he get his “national police”? The NaPo will be recruited from “young out-of-work urban men” and it will be hailed as a cure for the economic malaise of the inner cities.

In other words, Obama will put a thin veneer of training and military structure on urban gangs, and send them out to channel their violence against Obama’s enemies.

Instead of doing drive-by shootings in their own neighborhoods, these young thugs will do beatings and murders of people “trying to escape” — people who all seem to be leaders and members of groups that oppose Obama. Source: Slate

Orson Scott Card also believes Hillary Clinton won’t be the Democratic nominee for the 2016 presidential election, but Michelle Obama. She will be Obama’s Lurleen Wallace, George Wallace’s wife. That’s so ridiculous, since the 50 states play a role in electing the next president, not the sitting president, but why bother trying to rain on the right wingnuts’ parade?

Michelle Obama is going to be Barack’s Lurleen Wallace. Remember how George Wallace got around Alabama’s ban on governors serving two terms in a row? He ran his wife for the office. Everyone knew Wallace would actually be pulling the strings, even though they denied it. Michelle Obama will be Obama’s designated “successor,” and any Democrat who seriously opposes her will be destroyed in the media the way everyone who contested Obama’s run for the Democratic nomination in 2008 was destroyed.

LOL: Carnival Barker Donald Trump Makes First-Ever Political Visit to Iowa

Carnival barker and leader of the birther movement Donald Trump is feeling a little important these days. He made his first-ever political visit to Iowa, where he spoke to conservative Christians, trying to gin up interest in a possible 2016 presidential run. He labeled the U.S. a ‘laughingstock’ during an interview with NBC News.

Trump warned that Republicans will have a “really tough” time if Hillary Clinton is the Democratic presidential nominee in the 2016 presidential election. He also said the Senate’s immigration bill “could be a death wish” for the Republican Party but insisted the GOP has to do “the right thing.”

Um, sorry, for a minute I thought there was a chance he would really throw his hat in the ring, but considering that he’s the real laughingstock, that won’t happen. I scarcely believe he will do better than Mitt Romney with women, black, Hispanic and gay voters. If you ever had a moment of weakness and thought Donald Trump could be a credible presidential candidate, just think BIRTHER movement.

Correspondent Jonathan Karl asked the former presidential candidate about his pursuit of Obama’s birth certificate, suggesting it made him look not serious.

“Why does that make me not serious? I think that resonated with a lot of people,” Trump said.

Karl pressed if Trump still believes Obama was not born in the United States. “I have no idea,” Trump said. “I don’t know, was there a birth certificate? You tell me. You know, some people say that was not his birth certificate. I’m saying I don’t know. Nobody knows. And you don’t know either.”

“I’m pretty convinced he was born in the United States,” Karl replied, which prompted Trump to jump in and seize on “pretty convinced.” Karl then said he believed Obama was born in the U.S. “without question.” “Jonathan, you said you’re pretty convinced, OK? So let’s just see what happens,” Trump said. Source:  Politico

Of course, Donald Trump doesn’t seem to have an issue with Sen. Ted Cruz technically not being a natural born citizen, according to his view of President Obama. Hypocrite. Yeah, the GOP presidential clown car is gearing up for its grand entrance…..

The Republican presidential clown car is gearing up for another election season and the possible presidential contenders are just as interesting at those in the 2012 presidential election. Rep. Peter King (R-NY), who is all for racially profiling Muslims, told The Hill he’s “dead serious about exploring a bid for the White House, even as GOP strategists and consultants offer steep and potentially insurmountable odds for the New York Republican.” Rep. Peter King said,  “This is not a game I’m playing, I’m serious.” Um, dear God, please let him be the nominee to face Hillary Clinton…..

Talking Points Memo:  Hillary Clinton appears to have a new website. So far, hillaryclintonoffice.com has a picture of the former secretary of state and a form for contacting her.

NBC News Reporter Robert Bazell Raises Questions Hillary Clinton Blood Clot May Not Be Related to Concussion

Despite an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton releasing a statement saying she is hospitalized due to a blood clot stemming from a concussion, the questions continue to swirl. Why hasn’t a statement been released by the New York Presbyterian Hospital?

The top science reporter for NBC News raised questions Monday about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s hospitalization, raising the possibility the blood clot causing isn’t linked to an earlier concussion.“It’s not exactly clear what is happening with Secretary Clinton’s health,” NBC News chief science and health correspondent Robert Bazell said.

“All we have is a statement from her office. The hospital isn’t saying anything and the statement from her [office] says that she had this blood clot that stemmed from the concussion and she’s being treated with blood-thinning drugs,” Bazell continued. “The problem is that usually when blood clots come from concussions, they can’t be treated with blood [thinners.] So either it’s not really related to the concussion and she’s got a blood clot in her leg or something, or there’s something else going on that we’re not being told. And right now, we’re just sort of seeking that clarification and hoping for the best as she’s being observed.” Source: Politico
