New poll: with whom should Clinton run?

Sure, Bernie Sanders is a great US Senator and all around swell guy; but neither he nor Martin O'Malley can beat whichever earth hating clown the other side will nominate. Elizabeth Warren would be crazy to leave the US Senate from a state that could put a Republican in her seat.

Senators Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar can leave the US Senate because Minnesota would elect Democrats to replace them. Either would balance an East/West ticket. It's an historic presidential race regardless of the outcome so why not two women on top?

Jared Polis, US Representative from Colorado's Second Congressional District is my third choice for Veep bringing unprecedented diversity to a presidential team.

Fourth for my dream team is Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro, who would bring voters from all sectors of the economy. He has executive skills and brings unique geographical perspective to a national Democratic contest.

Former New Mexico governor, Gary Johnson, has announced his run as a Libertarian Party candidate.

So, ip readers: whom would you like running with Secretary Hillary Clinton?

Stupid comments will be deleted.

Personally . . I'm past placing "faith" in people politically. The track record doesn't support it. As a former political-thought student, however, I do still find it interesting to analyze.

From the cheap seats . . . I'd be a bit more hesitant than to throw all my chips in with Mrs. Clinton. Barack Obama overtook her 7 years ago because of her "likability" problem - and it is a real issue for her - like it or not. It is possible it could happen again.

The last thing this country needs is another Corporatist/Warrior sitting in the Oval Office. Do most American voters "get that"? Probably not - not yet anyway. That is the message that a serious challenger will want to project. And that is exactly who Hillary Clinton is - a Corporatist/Warrior.

Batter up . . . .

Duffer is spot on! Like i said before, she is the white flag of surrender. back to the republicans. When you going to get it,two parties-same team!!

Oh, for fuck sake, you two: she without sin cast the first stone. This is about crushing the Republican not about sanctimonious crap from the far left.

Come up with a realistic ticket that can win then show me the diesel fuel.

I know, I know, I know . . . .

Doesn't change what Hillary is though. Like her husband - which way is the wind blowing?

My question for you Mr. Kurtz . . . which one of these GOP nut-bags seeking the podium do you think is a credible candidate . . . and they are all nut-bags - some of them quite seriously so.

Do you think only the Clinton Machine can mine those waters?

I dunno, Duff: Rubio is polling well nationally. Marco Rubio/Mia Love would be a hoot. Or, Rubio/Huntsman maybe.

You?
