I guess Reagan winning landslide victories in 1980 and 1984 don't count, eh otter?
Anyways, I hope that the people that are Ready! for Hillary? understand there are issues out there like the Clinton Foundation that has had several pay-for-play scandals, Benghazi, huge speaking fees from wall street banks, missing e-mail server, health issues, paying women less than men, and her clear lack of likability or charm as a political candidate. Plus the fact that she is just plain old. You guys can make the meme about old-white republicans, but with this field the only tired old-white guy is Jeb!. Several latinos, an acclaimed neurosurgeon who's black, a female business owner, and a libertarian. Sounds pretty diverse to me.
I mean I'm not crazy about any of them but I like Hillary Clinton by far the most out of all of the candidates. She's a lot more center than Obama, she's all around tougher and a better leader (read the books by people who worked in the Obama White House about his poor leadership qualities) and she's got a lot of political capital/influence.
I find criticisms about her speaking fees pretty funny; given that the conservative party always wants to say that democrats are anti business and anti hard work, so that republicans who work in business or wall street related stuff are these great job creators and entrepreneurs... but if the Clintons are making bank then it's suddenly a big issue that requires investigations and scrutinization. She isn't really that secretive about it either... she's said more than a few times that she is highly privileged and has a ton of money, and has said "you shouldn't need to be the granddaughter of a former President and a Secretary of State to have the opportunity to succeed in America" in reference to her own granddaugther...
As for Benghazi, what exactly does that have to do with her? The idea that the Secretary of State is out there determining security contingents necessary for a consulate/embassy is just silly; and this tired old idea that "if she had woken up and answered the call at 3 am" has got to stop. Yeah ok Hillary Clinton could have saved everybody if she just woke up.
The acclaimed black neurosurgeon has already said some batsh*t insane stuff, like gay is a choice because people get ass raped in prison, the so called female business owner was a complete failure, Marco Rubio has no experience outside of a couple years in the Senate... I mean come on.
