Right Wing World: Hillary Clinton Will Win in 2016

While there is much to disagree with in the article excerpted below, it is nonetheless interesting to read a right wing take on something once in a while, particularly when said right winger thinks that Hillary Clinton is virtually unstoppable, and has in fact basically already won the 2016 presidency. All without even declaring!

As I said there is much to disagree with, starting with the repeated insistence that Clinton has the media wrapped around her finger. I don't see evidence for that, particularly when the slightest mention of a political sex scandal (such as Anthony Weiner's) has them dredging up Monica Lewinsky at the drop of a hat. There are lots of deeply right-wing "accepted as fact" assumptions like that in the article (Obama as "savior," ugh). But again, it's interesting to see the right's take on this, and to see an admission that they don't think they have a very deep bench, and virtually no one who could beat Hillary. Of course, the article says the same for the Democrats should she decide not to run, and I'm not so sure that's true. I'll vote for Hillary in a heartbeat, but I'd have no trouble checking the box for Elizabeth Warren either!
