    I believe it.

    It's the same way the most popular player on most NFL teams is the backup QB. :D

    Anyone who doesn't think Clinton wouldn't have been demonized the way Obama has been seems to have slept through the entire 90s.

    I'm hardly thrilled with the President, but I can't name one thing that she would have done that he failed to do.

    She would've played the health care game smarter, considering how she and her husband got it handed to them in 1993.

    Trying to do anything with health care in this country is akin to getting a tick off your dog. The forces aligned against universal care are legendary.

    Considering who Obama staffed himself up with - I really don't think we'd be in that different of a place.

    She would have proved on her very first day in office that she wasn't from Kenya.

    Yeah, but then she'd be dogged by suspicions that she's a murderess.

    Clinton never would have underestimated her republican counterparts the way Obama has.
    Nobody knows better than Hillary how dirty the fight can get on both sides. She would not have been as "over her head" as Obama seems these days.

    I think she would have tackled the jobs issue rather than going after health care.

    It's interesting because a lot of people think the main reason Obama went after health care so passionately is because it was the one thing (Bill) Clinton couldn't do.

    This. So thoroughly this.

    If anything, the GOP would have been more poisonous than ever with HRC as president because they wouldn't have underestimated her.

    The only thing I can think that might not have happened would be the Tea Party ... a movement that coalesces largely around the fact that the president is black.

    Jesus, where's that from? She looks fun, and almost human.

    I think it's safe to say that if Hillary took over as president with democratic majorities in both houses, she would have gotten a lot more done than Obama did.
