Hillary Clinton, Here's The Real Ghost Of Christmas Past [Pics]

DEM 2016 Clinton

According to aggregated polls from Real Clear Politics, Hillary Clinton currently leads the Democratic Primary Race with 54% of the vote and Sanders trailing behind with 30% of the vote. This seems like a significant and insurmountable lead until you consider that 8 years ago, on New Year's Day, Obama was trailing Hillary with only 23% of the vote to Hillary's massive 45% lead. These next few months will be very interesting for both campaigns.

If people want to hear what Sanders is saying he can be the President. He talks about the Average American lifestyle. He's as close to a middle class President we would ever have. He's not bought and paid for by billionaires. He's exactly the type of person you want to be elected into a seat of power. If you want to change the rigged economy and government you have to elect people that aren't in on the rigging.

She's a lock. There were two things that might have unseated The Queen: Joe Biden and Sanders actually gaining popularity. Neither happened so the DNC has it's wish: Hillary as the Democrat Nominee. >>>She's a 100% 'insider' like Biden was, and has proven herself capable in the two things the DNC admires: raising funds (she's the best at that! Legally OR otherwise) and telling lies. She's on even par with Obama and Biden in the lies department, but has decades of experience AND a willing MSM which is eager to cover up and deny FOR HER. Just like they were with Obama.

Yep, Clinton's a lock. Just not sure how the Republican mess is going to shake out. it's going to be a messy 2016 -- it was funny over the summer, but as we get closer and closer to crunch time, I'm getting a little nervous about the reality.

It largely depends (I think) on if anyone runs as an independent candidate and siphons away the votes from a Dem or a Repub. Or if the public finally sees what Hillary is really like: then she's doomed :-) >>>Of course, Obama may still backstab her, for whatever reason, that would be terrific!

"It's all part of a vast, right-wing conspiracy" Remember when Hillary said that? Bill Clinton was hiding behind the skirts of his wife and daughter in a video? It was directed at fellow Democrats, about accusations Bill had a mistress while Governor. He did BTW, it was the truth, and he undoubtedly used his Office even back then to enable and cover it up... same thing he did while President, and Hillary knew about both all along.

Hmm, that's weird. I submitted this with two photos showing side-by-side comparisons of Jan 1, 2008 and Feb 12, 2008. At any rate, on Jan 1, 2008 Hillary's poll numbers averaged at 45.4% while Obama's averaged at 23.8%. On Feb 12, 2008, Obama's poll numbers overtook Hillary's, with Obama polling at 44.6% and Hillary polling at 44.3%. I don't know how to submit content... =/
