    My sentiments exactly. And Romney didn't even have a Palin going for him.

    This was on Quora tonight. I hope s/he doesn’t get upset with me for copying it here.


    Q: What do the US military personnel think of Hillary Clinton?

    A: Pretty much she is universally reviled. Why? Well, there’s this thing called RUMINT, or Rumor Intel, and if you piss off the E-4 mafia in a big way, you had better believe the word will spread like a bad case of herpes. How she treated aircrew while SecState was a particularly well-known fact. She’s mean, boozy, and quite frankly an ice queen. What the public sees, and what she really is like are two very different people. Worse, you can tell that she would cut dead weight in a heartbeat, which to people who live and die by the words “no one gets left behind,” the idea of taking orders from her was particularly repugnant.

    Then there was her handling of classified information. If any, and I mean any service member did half of what she did, they’d get a cell right next to the Walker family. One sailor recently got pardoned by Donald Trump for four photos of him at his work station (at a Nuclear Power Plant on a submarine). As silly as it sounds he actually tried to use Hillary Clinton in his defense. It didn’t work. 4 pictures, of a secret, vs 30,000 e-mails, many of them special access which is above top secret. Worse Secret networks and Non-secure networks simply are not designed to talk to each other. You actually have to engineer a process to put secret emails on something like Yahoo like her aide did.

    Most service members I know truly hate her. Love or hate Donald Trump, we dodged a huge bullet with this woman. It’s just a shame that she was ever given any positions of power to begin with.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    . If you ain't havin' fun, it's your own damn fault

    Same here. Ryan and Romney are absolute weasels. Actually, calling them that insults weasels.

    Personnel currently Serving assuredly aren't voting Democrat in 2020. Why do we never see a 'Military'-poll?

    As for Palin, she'd be fighting in the foxhole with us. She was that kind of person and probably still is.

    Clinton and Warren would be out searching for a CNN-rowboat in a mild rain-squall. Neither shows signs of leadership-confidence.

    Hillary is not going to run in 2020. If she did and somehow won the nomination (I don't think she could win the nomination at this point in time), she wouldn't pick Elizabeth Warren as her running mate. Michelle Obama is not running in 2020.

    There are really only 3 candidates at this point in the Dem party who stand a chance in the primary or general: Biden, Warren and Sanders.

    The current scandal could take Biden out. If not, he will likely pick a younger black female as his running mate. Harris or someone like Stacey Abrams.

    Warren is rising in some polls. She's going to pick a male running mate if she gets the nomination, and probably a minority, like Booker or Castro.

    If Biden does end up backing out because of the Ukraine thing, Sanders' chances increase slightly. Who knows who he would pick as a running mate? The rest of the dems hate him because he's not really one of them. I could see him picking someone totally out of left field (pun intended), like Rashida Tlaib. He'd pick AOC, but she's too young to meet constitutional requirements.

    If Biden does end up stepping down, I could see Mayor Pete rising into the top 3 candidates. He comes across as reasonable and intelligent, plus he has a military service record. I don't think he has a prayer in hell in the general, though, mainly because he is gay and his name has "butt" in it. I could see Warren picking him as a running mate, but I think she'd be more likely to pick a minority candidate.

    It's one possibility that the insane "Ukrainian Impeachment" push is really designed to take out Joe Biden as collateral damage. If he drops out where is his 25% support going? Pocahontas? Bernie? Beto? Booker? Mayor Pete? Harris? Crazy Yang? I don't think so, these are the democrats that are not batshit crazy communists/socialists. If they were smart, they might go to the relatively moderate Tulsi who does not hate America. She might give Trump a run for the money. But,THEY ARE NOT SMART, they'll look to and old comfortable place ... Hillary. All she needs is an opening and a little (very little) push to jump back in.

    Bernie's apparent heart attack could force him out. I'm guessing that most of his support will go to Pocahontas. She may become unstoppable. The only thing that could get her elected is if the economy goes really, really bad. Wall Street tanks the moment she becomes the de facto nominee and, of course, the crash gets blamed on Trump. I'm really starting to get depressed again.

    What does everyone think now???

    I'm telling you, she is going to run.

    Why would she go on Howard Stern's
    show today??? She probably thinks he is
    crap on her shoes.

    But if you are going to make a late run...
    May the FORCE be with you!

    My guess is that she is only waiting for Biden to self-destruct and he's trying real hard to do so.
