The Democrats’ Battle for their Party’s Nomination as Presidential Candidate is getting interesting.
How do average Americans feel about the shenanigans of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s lying about the use of her private email server to transmit Top Secret State Department Official E-mails ?
According to Rasmussen Reports,
Growing national security questions about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server during her time as secretary of State are drowning out much of her message as a presidential candidate and causing many of her fellow Democrats to worry about the future of her campaign. Is it time for Clinton to put her campaign on temporary hold?
Voters are almost evenly divided on that question: the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters believe Clinton should suspend her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination until all of the legal questions about her use of the private e-mail server are resolved. Nearly as many (44%) disagree. Nine percent (9%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Even one-in-four Democrats (24%) agree that the front-runner for their party’s nomination should suspend her campaign for the time being. But that compares to 73% of Republicans and 46% of voters not affiliated with either major party.
Forty-five percent (45%) of all voters – but only 18% of Democrats – now consider the national security questions raised about Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server while serving as secretary of State to be a serious scandal. Twenty-eight percent (28%) of likely voters consider the matter an embarrassing situation, while nearly as many (23%) say it’s no big deal.
At the same time, Vice President Joe Biden is reportedly moving closer to a decision whether to challenge Clinton for the Democratic nomination because of her e-mail woes. Our latest Hillary Meter shows the former first lady losing ground noticeably among voters, but Democrats weren’t overly enthusiastic about a Biden run earlier this month.
Clinton has been far and away the leader of the Democratic presidential pack in surveys for months. Rasmussen Reports will release its latest numbers from the Democratic presidential race at 8:30 a.m. Eastern tomorrow (Wednesday).
So, our ‘Intercontinental”American Vice- President, he of the Russian hands and Roman fingers, is considering jumping into the race for the Democratic nomination for the Presidency of the United States of America.
CNN reports that
Vice President Joe Biden received President Barack Obama’s “blessing” to make a 2016 bid for the White House, according to a senior Democrat.
But that’s if Biden chooses to run — the decision is his. While he doesn’t need the President’s permission, of course, a potential presidential candidacy was among the topics of their lunch Monday at the White House. The President made clear he would not stand in his way or counsel him against a run, the senior Democrat said.
The Vice President’s office downplayed the speculation about Biden’s political future.
“Sources continue to speculate about something they know nothing about,” Biden spokeswoman Kendra Barkoff said. “This lunch was a private meeting between two people — the President and the Vice President.”
The Vice President was expected to huddle at his home Monday night with Anita Dunn and Bob Bauer, the husband-and-wife team who have been at Obama’s side for much of the last decade, two people familiar with the meeting told CNN. Steve Ricchetti, the Vice President’s chief of staff, was also expected to attend.
“As a general rule, we are not going to confirm the Vice President’s private meetings or provide a readout of them,” an aide to the Vice President told CNN on Monday.
Dunn, a former White House communications director, and Bauer, a longtime lawyer to Obama, were among those invited to a meeting at the Naval Observatory in Washington. Ted Kaufman, a loyal Biden confidant who briefly occupied his Senate seat from Delaware, was also among those gathering to discuss how Biden could run, if he decides to do so.
Biden is leaning toward running, several people involved in discussions told CNN, but they stress that he has not yet firmly made up his mind.
The meeting on Monday night, along with his private session on Saturday with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, underscores the length he is going to explore a run.
While many top Democrats have already signed onto Hillary Clinton’s candidacy, several former Obama advisers tell CNN they would work for Biden if he jumps into the race.
So, boys and girls, the question of the day is, which would you rather have as the Democratic nominee for President of the United States?
A woman, who where she spits, grass never grows again or crazy Uncle Joe?
What a choice. Can I have a Reuben Sandwich, instead?
The possible entry of Joe Biden into the race, not only brings the average IQ of the Democratic Candidates Candidates down to subterranean levels, it also adds the “Clown Factor” to the race.
You already have a lying woman who leaves bodies in her wake, a self-professed socialist, who is only popular among fellow socialists and the residents of his very tiny New England State, which he represents, and, some unknown guy from Maryland named O’Malley.
If 4 old white folks is your idea of diversity, then you should be in hog heaven.
Another question comes to mind though:
Who is President Barack Hussein Obama going to choose as his candidate of choice?
His current vice president or his former Secretary of State, whom he inherited as a result of a business deal designed to secure his presidential nomination from the Democratic Party.
Bozo or Broomhilda?
Unfortunately for the current occupant of the White House, he cannot follow the majority of the nation, as concerns these two potential Democratic Candidates for President, and choose None of the Above.
Until He Comes,
