Will Hillary Clinton Run Again For 2016?

Thu Dec 19, 2013 11:10 am

She said she would not but it seems that she would. Any idea? Will she win if she is going to run?

My guess is 95% odds that she will.

She retired from Secretary of State after doing a high stress and high visibility job. She is will rested and well positioned if she should choose to run.

She certainly is well admired amongst Dem ranks but also well disliked amongst GOP ranks. This means that if she gets in, her term(s) will be filled with conflict. Her high profile gives the GOP many points to attack. However she is no dummy. She will do great in debates. She will bring along a LOT of financial backing.

Personally I think she can't resist the idea of being the first woman President. This will give her lots of support amongst female voters. And of course she has quite a lot of ambition anyways.

She MUST be stopped from running, otherwise we will have four (possibly eight) more years of communism. RIP the United States of America, hello the United Communist States of America.

How about we get the GOP to field not so ****ty candidates? Or how about we support a third party?

How is it Hillary's fault or the Democrats' fault if she wins? It's the GOP's fault for being so lousy.

How are you gonna stop her anyway besides saying something stupid like we should arrest her?

Yes, because Democrats rely on defamation and voter fraud to win elections, and with Democrats in control of the Senate, they happily endorse those actions that would otherwise would be frowned upon if a Republican candidate were to do the same. And this is an ABSOLUTE FACT, not an opinion REGARDLESS of what Democrats want us to believe.

Exactly. We need a Republican who will enforce these laws. Republicans never resort to such actions because they are the party of law and order. Democrats don't care one bit if they are breaking the law or if they are being unethical.

She is going to run. She's basically done everything necessary to announce a run. We all know it's coming.

And if she wants the job, all indicators are that she can have it. Not because she's wonderful, but because the best the GOP can do is Chris Christie, who just wound up with a lot of egg on his face.

If the GOP will provide an electable candidate and stop making ridiculous claims, they might win an election.

What is with GOP fans? Seriously the United Communist States of America? Take a look at where the USA is today vs where it was 30 years ago.

The USA has one of the greatest un tapped potential of any western country in the world. The politicians and greed has been ruining that for years.

The USA has the best health care in the world, but only for those who can afford it. The people who most frequently need the healthcare are the people who have the most restricted access.

Look at the income gap between the richest and poorest. The GOP is the party that would most support the widening of the income gap.

The incarceration, education and poverty statistics are very disheartening. Social issues, such as maternal/paternal leave, gay rights among many others are far behind many other western countries. Huge racial gap and conflict exists.

With all these problems, why do many in the USA consider the Republicans to be their party? To me many Republicans should be charged with contempt of their constituents but that is another argument all together.

So much hatred spewed at a person that has yet to formally make a decision makes me think that you (and many other like you) are scared she might run because the election might already be in the bag.

Being serious, for sure. As if anyone think DL would really let her use the pink 764 as her campaign plane. The pink 764 is supposed to symbolize breast cancer awareness, Evelyn H. Lauder, and the BCRF, not Hillary's personal campaign aircraft. The same goes with any other aircraft with a special livery, since they would be sending conflicting messages if they were used as a campaign aircraft for any political candidate, and would be immediately recognized as that candidate's aircraft, which would scare away many passengers who don't support that candidate. It would be like DL introducing a livery endorsing a specific candidate.

There is NO pink gay pride plane and there NEVER WILL BE ONE whether you like it or not. The Pink 764 represents breast cancer awareness, Evelyn H. Lauder, and the BCRF.

Because most of the local politicians that support DL are Republicans.

This clearly works against DL, and Hillary Clinton supports this law 100%.

Just for the record: no Presidential candidate will ever charter an Airbus as long as Boeing (and McD) planes are available. That would be the equivalent of painting a huge target on yourself.

Now, it would not shock me to see Mrs. Clinton hire a small WB since any campaign of hers is going to be monumental. But my guess is that she will probably try to find a way to get her hands on a 737 or 757.

Maybe you need to take another look at all the yo-yos who were in the GOP Debates for the 2012 Election.

To be fair, all party debates always have a whackadoo or two in them regardless of the party.

Quoting DocLightning (Reply 35):
Now, it would not shock me to see Mrs. Clinton hire a small WB since any campaign of hers is going to be monumental. But my guess is that she will probably try to find a way to get her hands on a 737 or 757.

Well Obama's campaign was no less monumental and I believe he was in a 757. Of course this depends on how deep the pockets are, though. So she may upgrade to a 767 if she has the means.

Being perceived as a gay-friendly company=good reputation=more business. And leasing an aircraft for Hillary (who will win)=reputation as the presidential airline=more international business

Flawless logic. I think it's settled: Delta is a gay airline.

Quoting DeltaMD90 (Reply 38):
While taking a major PR and financial hit in this country. Businesses have more to lose supporting one candidate over another.

Conducting business with a candidate is not the same as supporting a candidate. If Delta leases a plane to her, it will not a charitable by any means. Anybody who chooses airlines based on which politicians they do business with is an idiot, frankly.

Because this is a far more important issue to DL than LGBT rights. Democrats are introducing laws to DESTROY DL, and staying in business is far more important to DL than supporting gay rights.

Ok.... and that has what to do with corporate culture and how they treat their employees??? You are politicizing everything to a party platform, it's insane. Obviously Delta, like any major company, will scratch the back of those who can further their interests. Beyond that is conjecture. No one is saying Delta has/will have a gay plane. They're just having fun with you because your lack of self-awareness and , ahem, posting style makes you exceedingly entertaining to screw with. For your information.

You're saying because Delta is from a red state and obviously deals and gives money to lots of Republicans by proxy that they are anti-gay or whatever and don't support gay rights?? Uhh, ok, how they operate internally speaks differently..

by the way, do you have highly selective vision?

Oh what the heck, tickle me some, why don't you give us your definition of communism and how it is embodied by Obama or our country at the moment.
Quoting jpetekyxmd80 (Reply 29):

Did it ever even occur to you that someone said she was chartering that plane just to rile you up? since you came into this thread incoherently ranting about communism and love that airplane??

Also, are you serious about this? That will be very illuminating for nearly everyone here..

Quoting 1337Delta764 (Reply 23):

Nope, she will be using a US/AA A330. She hates Boeing with a fiery passion and will always choose an Airbus aircraft. Furthermore DL would never allow her to use one of their aircraft, since DL is based out of a red state and supports the local Republicans.

Why not? Pink is a rather feminine color as well. Would go perfect with the Democrat blue.

Because the BCRF will NEVER approve such use of an aircraft. This VIOLATES DL's contract with the BCRF and DL could risk a lawsuit and losing its partnership.

Quoting einsteinboricua (Reply 37):

Actually, DL would do well to support gay rights.

Being perceived as a gay-friendly company=good reputation=more business. And leasing an aircraft for Hillary (who will win)=reputation as the presidential airline=more international business.

No, DL would LOSE business if they were to do this since there are LOTS of politically conservative FFs that have Diamond Medallion status, much more so than liberals.

I NEVER said DL doesn't support gay rights. But DL has much bigger fish to fry, and unions is one of the most important issues that actually can have a serious negative impact on the company.

HAHAHA. Ok, breathe. While that's very possible for Delta with their base, you think Diamond Medallions just up and leave Delta and their status to some other (probably liberal) airline for making a business decision of leasing the plane to a Democratic nominee? Wow.

Delta won't be leasing a plane to Hillary, but it's because the length of the lease usually prohibits majors from getting involved with that business. They would for the right price. And your comments about Hillary and the Airbus are absolutely priceless.

I think to be able to lie about something you have to have some knowledge or idea how the world works in the first place.

Well first of all, I doubt anybody here is privy to the contract between Delta and the BCRF, so none of us can comment with certainty what liberties Delta can or cannot take with their advertising of the aircraft in question.

Secondly, there's almost nothing to suggest that the partnership in question actually benefits Delta apart from a bit of goodwill. So the dissolution of the partnership would not be particularly harming to either party it seems.

Thirdly, the BCRF is non-political. If Delta was in breach of contract by cross-promoting the aircraft with LGBT causes, there would almost certainly be an amicable solution with the BCRF not jumping the gun with an expensive lawsuit.

Not necessarily true. I think it is possible to just make stuff up without any basis in reality or fact. Perhaps that's not technically a lie, but it achieves the same effect.

Hillary Clinton would likely be a very strong candidate in 2016. I think right now some of the more astute members of the GOP are looking around trying to figure out a "path" that might lead to 270 electoral votes for any Republican candidate.

She MUST be stopped from running, otherwise we will have four (possibly eight) more years of communism. RIP the United States of America, hello the United Communist States of America.

You don't even live in a socialist state, I'd go as far as saying the USA could do with a good dose of socialism.

I think she's going to run, but I think America might be done with Presidents named Bush or Clinton.

Yes to Bush but I always though Clinton was one of the best Presidents you've had in decades, he was certainly highly respected outside of the US, more than anyone named Bush!

Hmmm..

Delta's float in Atlanta's Gay Pride Parade:



And, if that wasn't enough to shoot your argument full of holes:

Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world
The heart has its beaches, its homeland and thoughts of its own
Wake now, discover that you are the song that the morning brings
The heart has its seasons, its evenings and songs of its own

Listen, I am not denying that DL supports gay pride. However, there are much bigger issues that DL is concerned about, and unions is one of the most important that would sway DL's endorsements in favor of the GOP.
