Satisfying libido needs in the Caribbean--I'm only surprised the lady was of age (one not one of those Bunga Bunga) things. What is his "voting present" record? Menendez was appointed to head the Senate Foreign Relations Affairs Committee. He is an active proponent of the amnesty bill to recruit new Democrats into the party.
There are probably 500 women out there, who could make great a U.S. President; Hillary Clinton is just not one of them. After all her lies to prop up Bill Clinton's presidency and after all her lies to prop up Obama's presidency, why would anyone believe her on anything? Can the Democratic Party produce a presidential candidate that is not scummy?

Where's the hook and gong to shuffle this contemptible, woman-in-waiting, off the political stage? She, like Champ, are failures at just about everything they do. They both satisfied the Peter Principle long before they started! Surely, we have much, much better.

At least Justinian's Theodora admitted she was once a prostitute.

Can the Democratic Party produce a presidential candidate that is not scummy?
I don't believe so...not after the ones I've seen. LBJ, jimmuh carter, Bill Clinton, Obama. That's not a very good track record. Our only hope is to get a Republican nominee who truly understands what's at stake and who his or her opponents are...and that's a slim hope.
The justification to nominate Hillary is that she is a woman? OK, I'll concede there is a question about that? What a crock! By that reasoning the Donks should work their way down the list so that they elect every permutation of the human condition into the office (except for anyone conservative or Christian). For example are Donks going to select a LGBT candidate, then LBGT Native-American-Hispanic, Aleutian Island native, former drug user, etc.? Scratch the last one, that's already been done.
It seems that if you associate with celebrity, demonize and lie about your opponent or his or her party, appear on all the TV programs that are in the vogue, stack the vote, get packaged as the next saviour, pull in campaign funds here and abroad, you are likely going to win no matter what kind of scoundrel you are.
I think that "What difference, at this point, does it make" will be Hillary Clinton's famous last words. She has more skeleton's in her Arkansas closet than a low-budget horror movie. Democrats would never dare open that door, but if Republicans learned anything from the 2012 election it should be that nice people don't win prisidential elections.
At 70 years of age, and with questionable health, Hillary Clinton probably wil not have the physical stamina for a prolonged presidential campaign against the Republican's stable full of strong young candidates.
My second biggest disappointment during the 2012 elections was the defeat of Mia Love (for the Utah House of Representatives). Mia Love, in my opinion, is exactly the kind of candidate the Republican Party absolutely needs to promote, if they want to avoid complete Obsolescence by 2024.
Michelle Obama is without doubt being groomed as a presidential candidate. The FLOTUS has traditionally always been off limits to any smear tactics. But I think at this point it would be completely naive to believe that if the shoe was on the other foot Democrates would be doing everything in their power to smear her reputation. Michelle Obama is NOT a nice person. Unless Republicans plan to relegate themselves to the dust bins of history, today is the day they need to get their "heads out" and engage in the same dirty game Democrats have forced into play over the past decade.
Kelly Ayotte, Susana Martinez, and Sarah Palin, in my opinion, will never be politically strong enough to win the presidency. Hence my disappointment at the young female minority void left by Mia Love's defeat.
I fear for the survival of the Republican Party beyond 2014 without the appeal of young female minority candidates. They would eliminate the current political void, and compliment the policys of Bobby Jindel, Ted Cruiz and Marko Rubio.
I don't think Hillary Clinton can win in 2012. I expect the Democrats to alternatively trot out someone like Michelle Obama, Elizabeth Warren or more likely some bad mouthed canidate like Jim McDermott.
Mia Love will run again in 2014. I don't live in Utah and I don't support her per se.
I see her candidacy only as the harbinger of the direction the Republican Party is going.
The Republican Party can remain the party of "old white men" or they can throw that mantle back where it belongs around the necks of the Democrats.
Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, John Kerry, Chuck Hagel, Elizibeth Warren and Jim McDermott, are the most prominant faces of the Democrat Party. Old white people.
The next three and a half years affords the Republicans a great opportunity to become the party of the young upcoming political all-stars. Or they can continue their downward spiral toward the garbage heap of political history.
