    Hillary probably will not be indicted but the drip, drip, drip of her scandals, including her irresponsible use of an easily hacked private server to conduct secret government business is nonsense on stilts.

    Biden will probably announce after Labor Day. I think that a sitting Vice-President always gets the nomination if he wants it. Obama will probably endorse Biden--how could he not? If Obama dislikes Bill (as is reported) and Michelle and Valerie dislike Hillary (as is reported), then Biden would be their natural choice.

    Bernie Sanders is a left-over hippie and not really a Democrat but an independent, a socialist, who caucuses with the Democrats. He has the support of the hard-core left but would not be the choice of the moderate Democrats, what few there are left.

    Hillary is not even that popular with women and her negatives are high and beyond repair. About half of the electorate calls her a liar. After decades of scandals, there is little that Hillary can do to repair her image. She seems to lack energy or enthusiasm on the campaign trail and people are repelled by her personal coldness. Her eyes seem to be just $$$$$$.

    I suspect you may be right.

    Al Gore, Part II.

    The Dems aren't falling for it. Hillary is the nominee. Nice that y'all want someone else. But she's the one they know can win, and she's the one they will put up.

    Let me clarify that I myself am unconcerned with what the Democrats do--it's their decision--but I am merely making a prediction based upon the forces at work.

    Biden has two major assets. He is a sitting Vice-President. Does anyone know if a sitting Vice-President ever lost a party's nomination? Secondly, Biden will have Obama's endorsement and blessing, forcing the other candidates to run against Obama and all that is involved with running against Obama. The GOP against Biden will be charged with racism.

    Nice spin. But it ain't happening. 4 SCOTUS Justices on the line. They are going with the sure thing.

    Hillary.

    So Obama's endorsement won't mean anything?

    If Joe is the nominee Hillary will probably be his running mate and if Joe get's elected but die's in office Hillary will be president anyway.

    I never thought of that scenario but it is an interesting idea! Do you think that it is true that Obama dislikes Bill and that Michelle and Valerie dislike Hillary?
