    There are times when I think she wouldn't be a good President.
    This validates it to me.

    There is that distinction, but it's pretty flimsy. But, really, what is she going to say? She's going to get the question, you know she is.

    I'm a lefty, will most likely vote with the party this November and next, but I don't want to vote for her. Bill? Sure. Hillary?
    Not a fan.

    There are times when I think she wouldn't be a good President, as well. Like ... ummm ... all the time.

    Say it with me, folks: Un. Elect. Able.

    I'm left-leaning, but I grow more and more weary of her every day. If Democrats put her in the election ahead of Obama, well, that is a wasted opportunity.

    or Edwards, or Gore (is it too late to hope?). Republicans are demoralized and the country's finally fed up with their act, I can't believe the Democrats might blow this opportunity by nominating the wrong candidate.

    I can. After the gutless way they rolled over against a weakened Bush on the funding bill, anything is possible.

    I'll say this: If it's Clinton vs. (insert Republican here) and a 3rd-party candidate CAN'T make a dent, then a credible 3rd-party run is NEVER happening.

    And what's the law? Isn't a third party eligible for federal funds if it gets 10% of the presidential vote? Or am I hallucinating again?

    Mustard, I think this might answer it.


    Minor, or third party nominees may also be eligible for federal funding, but the process is a bit more complex. A minor party candidate's public funding grant is based on a formula subject to the percentage of votes the party received in the previous presidential general election. The candidate is only eligible for general election public funds if the party's candidate received at least 5 percent of the vote in the previous presidential election.

    Same old shit. Elect her, and all the bullshit that's been going on since 1992 will continue. We need someone who can make a clean break from all this red-state/blue-state crap.
