Magazine cover conjures 'Hillary's nightmare'
Washington Examiner ^ | November 8, 2013 | REBECCA BERG

Posted on 11/09/2013 2:55:29 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife

A new edition of the left-leaning magazine The New Republic imagines Hillary Clinton's political "nightmare" as a crowd of people holding up Elizabeth Warren masks.

The Image, an homage to the original promotional poster for the film "Being John Malkovich," will run with the tagline, "A Democratic Party that realizes its soul lies with Elizabeth Warren instead."

Clinton, who is weighing a bid for president in 2016, is widely viewed among Democrats as the party's logical nominee should she run. Unlike in 2008, when then-Sen. Barack Obama was making overtures about a serious bid for the presidency, no apparent Democratic challengers to Clinton have yet emerged.

And, while some progressive Democrats have pointed to Warren as a potential alternative to Clinton, the senator from Massachusetts has denied any interest in running for president. When asked recently whether she would consider it, she answered in the negative, and she was among the signatories on a letter sent to Clinton in February from the Senate's Democratic women, urging her to run for president in 2016.

Hillary is what in her upper 70s now?

I think she just took the cure and is looking more like her 66 years.

I'm afraid that Gov. Martinez has tossed her hat in the ring for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

“I [Orin Hatch] was very interested that he had Susana Martinez there in the last days to campaign with him,” Hatch told reporters on Capitol Hill Wednesday. “Because that would make a great ticket.”

Martinez was in New Jersey on the final day before the election to stump for Christie at a slew of stops in the Garden State. Hatch, who has also campaigned with Martinez, called the nation’s first female Hispanic governor “really outstanding” with a “very attractive personality.” ----- Presidential election 2016: Orrin Hatch dreams of Chris Christie-Susana Martinez ticket

You gotta love that ‘Despot pose’, or ‘Tyrants stance’. You know, Chin up, eyes glancing upwards and that snobbish nose pose. Just like the ones put out by Hitler, Stalin, and countless other despot fascists.

I think that Elizabeth Warren needs to run as a 3rd Party candidate. She should be the candidate of the Indigenous People's Party.

I will support her in this endeavor, and I want to encourage others on FR to support her candidacy too.

“Elizabet Warren the Indian?”

I think Warren can get elected by liberal nutcases, but are there enough of them in the entire country? I think she’s a regional phenomenon, like Nancy Pelosi. (Somebody said that Pelosi’s politics don’t reflect those of the country, but they do reflect those of her district. I believe that’s the case with Warren too.)

That neck! Yikes! What do you suppose happens to it when her chin is not lifted in that “Despot pose”.

Note to HC: get a scarf or a burka from Huma and give us a break.

I believe the world has lost its passion for Baby Boomer leaders who would be better suited for organizing bingo parties at skilled nursing facilities rather than leading political parties and nations to ruin.

Time has not been a particularly good bedfellow for our haggard stateswoman.

I think the Dem base will be tired of the same old faces (pardon the pun) by the time 2016 rolls around. They’ll be reeling from the horrible economy worsened by ObamaCare, and the Dem powerbrokers will need a fresh-faced liar to do their bidding (as Obama was in 2008). They’ll trot out their next puppet as a “new kind of Dem”; if they stay with the same failed team I don’t see them winning.

There would a certain schadenfreude and general humor in seeing Hillary! once again challenged and subsequently defeated from the left in a Democratic primary. Obama ran to her left of her in 2008, and Warren would do the same in 2016.

The scary thought of course, would be the possibility that Warren could get elected in 2016.*** In saner times, someone that radical would be pulling numbers like Barry Commoner. But, Kerry was narrowly defeated in 2004, and Obama has won twice since then, so....

.

***The idea of Hillary! as Prez doesn’t thrill me either, of course.

Someone remind me what Hillary has actually successfully run or accomplished again? And don’t say her campaigns.

The only silver lining about a HC Presidency would be that Bill would be pulling many of the strings in the background. While I’m no fan of Bill, he is not as incompetent as Obama. Elizabeth Warren on the other hand is just a female version of Obama.

Just musing here. In the end, all the Dems suck eggs.

I don't think Hillary at her age and questionable state of health could withstand the enormous rigors of a presidential race....and she knows it. She'll end up with a cushy sinecure as a college president/rainmaker somewhere so she can contaminate young skulls full of mush.

I predicted three months ago on this board that John Kerry would be the Dem nominee for president....and I'm sticking to it, ugh.

“Elizabeth Warren run for President? Buahahahahahahah, even she can’t be dumb enough to believe she has a chance.”

I’m in full agreement with your remark.

When I first heard about obama before the 2008 election I had a similar opinion and thought this unheard of nobody with no qualifications would soon go away. WRONG!

Just keep in mind in today’s world when up is down and down is up, right is wrong & wrong is right people like obama and Warren get elected.

Imagine a 2016 election having Christy or Warren to pick from? The only ones coming out to vote will be the hard left, low information types and some women who have never voted in their entire life coming out to vote for Warren.

Elizabeth Warren run for President?

Of course. She has double diversity points for being female and (allegedly) a native American. Hillary has only the fact that she is biologically a female. She could equal Warren's diversity score by coming out as a Lesbian. I don't see that happening, but the way this country is going, it's still a possibility.

You must realize by now that, for democRats, qualifications and experience are irrelevant.

Once in great awhile, I’ll go read the left wing forums like Democratic Underground and the Daily Kos.

From my reading the left wing sites, I have noticed that the moonbats love Elizabeth Warren just like they loved Obama in 2005.

I think that Warren has a shot at the Dem nomination for POTUS if she runs. Remember Hillary was the Democratic frontrunner for 2008 until the actual voting started.

You pose an interesting scenario.

Now a lot of folks on here (myself included) believe that the Chicago mob held a trump card - Arkcancide - to strike a mutually assured destruction pact with the Clinton Crime Family. So the Clintons couldn’t use their vaunted detective op to dig up and publicize Baraq’s obviously bogus history.

I wonder if Fauxcahontas has a similar nuke in her arsenal, if not, Palladino & Sutherland are gonna be in her shorts the day she declares her candidacy.

We might NEED to have Lie-a-Watha run as an independent in 2016!

We all know the damage that a third-party candidate can cause; witness the Virginia gubernatorial election. I’m sure we can expect Soros & Co. to field a “right wing option” that will draw votes away from whichever conservative we have in the 2016 race.

(Make no mistake, there WILL be a real conservative running. Never again will we let the GOPe tell us which loser to support.) (And this with “Won’t Get Fooled Again” by The Who on the radio behind me; how appropriate!)

So why can’t two play at that game? Field a super-Lefty to draw votes from the more moderate commies in the Democrat camp?
