I am not a Hillary fan by no means, but if she runs. She is clearly the favorite. The Republicans have got to drop the Benghazi story. The more it gets brought up the stronger she gets. It looks like a bunch of old white males ganging up on a female. Nobody really cares about Benghazi as a nation. Ask people in the streets. They are more likely to say; " Who is Benghazi? " Plus, when the Presidential election gets closer. You will hear about history in the making. First woman president. The media will hype that up for shore. More women voted last election than men for the first time ever.
Look at the Republicans right now. They are in complete disarray. There is no one voice. Instead you get 3 different voices. The only Republican candidate Democrats are scared of right now is Chris Christi. He is moderate enough to pull enough middle of the road voters to win. The Democrats are just begging for the Rush Limbaugh's and the Sean Hannity's to pick their Republican nominee again. He or she would get beat again. Remember these people are loud, but in the minority.
Senator McCain may run as an Independent just so he can get back at the Arizona Republicans who just censored him. He might just give the Republicans the middle finger and get enough votes to cost the Republicans the 2016 elections.
Now the 2014 elections go to Republicans big time. Republican are more dedicated to their cause, and show up at the election booths regardless of the type of election.
By the way I am an Independent voter who does vote at every election since 1998 ( Which means pick me in jury duty )
