Hillary, Joe - There may be somebody else between now and then.

@Green Witch,
I just hired Elizabeth Warren to be my Senator. She sought a 6 year term. I don't want her to run.

@Green Witch,
I've been thinking about that!

I'm just not sure about Clinton, even though I've been happy with how she's handled being Secretary of State and even though I love the idea of having a woman president.

Probably not Elizabeth Warren.

But who?

Not sure. I think probably younger, 40's to early 50's range.

There's the perennial who I would most like to have as president vs. who would have the best chance thing, too. (Sometimes those attributes are in the same person, often not.)

Nobody jumps out at me just yet but I'm thinking about it and keeping an eye out.

I've always liked Russ Feingold. First Jewish President? He's a bit on the older side of the spectrum though (59 now).

Tammy Baldwin is another longtime fave (first gay AND female president!!) but I don't really know enough about her current policies etc. to back her.

@sozobe,
Deval Patrick is another maybe, there are a lot of things I like about him but there are some concerns too, and he's so Obama-esque that might be a little weird. Cory Booker, same.

@sozobe,
As a Massachusetts resident, I would say no to Deval Patrick. I don't think he has the political talent for the national stage. He is no where near as politically astute or good with a speech as president Obama.

@Green Witch,
I refuse to answer for a week. Not quite ready to start the 2016 campaign yet.

That's a ticket guaranteed to lose the election. At least in the climate of 2012. What the climate will be in 2016 is another question. But I doubt very much that two women running in tandem can make it even four years from now. I have an open mind but I don't intend to even think about 2016 until maybe late 2014.

Hillary - for real. She would win in a landslide, and I like those.

On the Republican side, I would like to see a Paul Ryan/Michelle Bachmann ticket.

I have said it many times before, but my first choice for president is Evan Bayh.
I know he is no longer in politics, but he will be my first choice.
He was a democrat senator from Indiana, and also a liberal.

I disagreed with most of his positions, but there is more to it than that.
Therre are all the intangibles that I include in my decision, things like he looks you in the eye when he talks to you, he says what he thinks even when he knows people wont like it, he actually pays attention to what others say, and other things.

I know it doesnt make sense that I would support a liberal, but in this case I do.

But since he most likely wont come out of retirement to run, I wont even speculate right now about who I will support.

is there any chance that the repubs could re-animated the corpse of Ronnie Reagan

and maybe make some special dispensation for the reanimated corpse of Margaret thatcher to run as his VP

okay, so Maggie ain't dead yet, but then it's not 2016 either

He was term-limited anyway.

@OmSigDAVID,
maybe death would negate that, did the founding fathers make provisions for zombies?

@djjd62,
Reagan would be considered a moderate liberal by today's GOP.
