What a week, President Obama and Sen. Elizabeth Warren in a truth off, our first female African American Attorney General had her nomination freed at last and was appointed and some of the early mudslinging against Hillary Clinton has started to stick a little. We’re chatting live about these and other events this week tonight at 7:00pm PDT right here on Vox Populi! Hope to see you then!

Hey Ad–Here are my two best quotes of the week from Jay Bookman at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. #1. Referring to the “new” Benghazi committee chaired by Curt Gowdy, which, of course won’t take place until next year: ” The Select Committee on Dead-Horse Flogging. #2. Referring to the same committee: “Gowdy and his gang of post-mortem equine abusers.” Love Jay!

This week went well, how about you? This is exactly what I had been cautioning about Hillary, it’s a huge mistake for Dems to put all of their eggs on her basket.

My week–same ol’, same ol’. Which is a good thing. I’m getting too old for too many “surprises”. As for all eggs in one basket, I see Martin O’Malley is starting to speak out a little. Sure wish he would announce.

Hillary and Bill have led a very entangled and complicated life with politics and finance. Wall Street seems amused at her populist outbursts, they seem to be assured, maybe by Bill, that it’s all just a ploy to keep Progressives from getting into the primary.

I think O’Malley will declare but I think his tactic of being seen as the top Dem Hillary basher is a mistake. He does need to take her on but if he looks too angry doing it, it will minimize him as a candidate.

Make him look too calculated and petty. Whoever the candidate is who wants to be the alternative to Hillary, has to be confident and strong against Hillary but more affirmative about a vision than hammering Hillary.

I know. I still can’t make up my mind about the Clintons. On one hand, I think they are both very intelligent, clever people. And I do think that they want to serve the public. On the other hand, they are sometimes too clever for their (or the country’s) own good. And, while serving the public, they have enriched themselves very well. Sigh….however, that being said, if Hillary is the Dem candidate, and that looks almost to be a lock-up, then I will support her.

I’m not ready for Hillary, I expect to have a real primary first and in that pursuit, I’m less inclined to support her because that’s supporting a coronation.

Ad–so who do you think should be in that “real primary’?

And, Ad, do you think a primary will actually be “real”, or will it be just going through the motions?

glenn – Who I’d like to see won’t run. Sherrod Brown, Elizabeth Warren, hey, I’ll take Al Franken!
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–so you don’t like O’Malley to run?

Murph–what are your thoughts on this? And…have you committed to the Hillary campaign in your state yet?

glenn – Sure, I’m fine with O’Malley running, not sure that he has the charisma to beat Hillary as my suggestions might but happy to have him in the race.

I can absolutely imagine that if Hillary has a cake walk to the GE, she’s tattooed with “scandals” that the GOP will have better luck sticking to her than stuck to Obama.

The Clintons are drama magnets, Obama is no-drama Obama. And in a Presidential election, drama ain’t good.
