You can hope all you want, Ned, but even if he runs, Biden will never become the Democratic nominee in 2016. Maybe you haven't noticed that the Left has become just as strategic as the Right. Sorry, but we're not all a bunch of pot smoking hippies anymore, not that there's anything wrong with that :wink:

NH Polls have it as Clinton v. Christie as of today. But Christie is currently being backed over by the bus of conservative media pretty ferociously right now.

The last thing I want to think about right now is another presidential election.

That's why I'm putting my money on Hilary vs. Condi in 2016.

No offense, folks, but this line of speculation is just plain dumb.

Who would have guessed in 2004 that Obama would have been the Dem nominee in 2008? Absolutely fucking nobody, that's who. So what's the point of this?

Also: I can't for the life of me understand why anybody thinks Hillary is any kind of shoo-in given her performance last time around. She'd certainly be a very hard sell for me.

Aren't there better things we could be discussing? At the very least, aren't there better threads we could be bumping?

Actually, after I saw his speech in '04 the first thing I thought was that this guy is going to run in the next election. I'm not saying I'm a soothsayer(well maybe) but I'm quite sure I wasn't the only one thinking that.

Alas, I agree. It's just way too fucking soon. Let's get us some kitten threads going.

There's an enormous gap between "going to run" and "will be nominated." Just sayin'.

No. Meade was a happy little piggy rolling around in this thing for weeks.

Now that he would rather it just went away, it's going to stay around for a while.

Because I want it to. And I don't much care that you and Meade would like it to stop.

How dare you question my ability to predict the future. In the end it doesn't matter cause we're all gonna be dead in December anyways. Fucking Mayans.

Take heart. I'm not quite as OCD as that other guy. Just a little while longer. It's my way of celebrating.

Sorry Ned. Your 8 year nightmare of having a Kenyan Socialist in the White House is only going to get worse. Hillary is going to run, and she is going to win.

Imagine a 70-something Bubba sneaking 40 year-old Hollywood bimbos in the back door (so to speak)?

Sounds like fun!

It does sound like fun, especially since at 70 he'd be among the younger Supreme Court justices-- just to add froth to your dreams, Neddy.
