The long-awaited announcement has come, Hillary Clinton is running for president. This will be her second run at America’s top job. Clinton’s political experience, Secretary of State during President Obama’s first term (09-13). Senator representing the state of New York (01-09). And as we all know First Lady (93-01).
The question that I, who am loyal to the Democratic Party has, “What viable opponent will run against Clinton during the primary?” Vice president Biden has interest in a run but, he is not a viable candidate. Elizabeth Warren, a media darling who many would like to see run has not indicated she will. So who is left???
Clinton’s fall from the democratic machine’s good grace’s (and money) during her first run is a concern. My concern would be if she’s simply “anointed the Democratic candidate” with no competition. If so, it may be a shaky election day in 2016 running against the Republican nominee. And who will that be???? Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Chris Christie? None look like contenders today but we are a long way and a ton of money away from November 2016.
