Hillary Rodham Clinton holds a 6-1 lead among Democrats answering a Washington Post-ABC News poll on their choice for president in 2016.

Clinton, whose middle name easily could be “F.” considering how many times she has been reported as using the “f—“ word,  has virtually no competition in both areas – the nomination for presidency and an uncouth vocabulary. She has used the four-letter word not only as an adjective for Jews but also as an adverb for almost every subject imaginable.

For better or worse, Clinton has 73 percent backing of Democrats, according to the poll. The second most popular is Vice President Joe Biden, with only 12 percent.

On the Republican side, the nomination is up for grabs, and the party does not look like it is any better shape than it was in 2012, when it failed miserably to take advantage of President Barack Obama’s sagging popularity.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s aura has been blackened by the recent bridge-traffic scandal, and he is in third place with 13 percent support, behind Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan and former Florida governor Jeb Bush. None of the potential candidates has solid backing from the Tea party.

After Christie, there are senators Ted Cruz of Kentucky and Marcio Rubio of Florida.

The Republicans have a year or so to get their act together and unite, a distant possibility at this stage of the game.

Clinton, if she runs and wins,, would be the first woman president of the United States and the first president whose husband held the office.

  1. Ted Cruz is from Texas, not Kentucky. It is foolish to want to be a Republican front leader at this time, because whoever the Republicans nominate, the media will excoriate that person.

  2. The first female president should be an independent woman. When she's the wife of a former president, it just looks shady and future generations will always wonder if the first actually earned it or if her husband's position helped her get there. Between the Bush's and the Clintons, isn't it looking more like a succession of kings and queens than something you'd expect from a democratic process? I'm sure she'd be fine compared to other presidents, but she's not ideal for that reason. Jeb Bush shouldn't run either.

  3. Biden and Hillary both have roots just north of here, in the Scranton, PA area. It is an embarrassment to me, personally. Especially Hillary. She has been a liar and a manipulator of the gullible since her birth. I for one turn my back on her. She brings no honor to any of us, and will eventually pass into oblivion within the collective memory of man. There is no good use to be found for Jezebels here.

  4. She was a major actor in an administration that made a major negative shift in the relationship of Israel and the USA, It was obvious that was part of the goal from the very beginning ,as a good relationship with the Muslim countries was a major focus. She was part and parcel of the support for the Muslim Brotherhood. The sad fact is that 70%++ of Jewish voters would vote for her, just as they did for Obama. Being politically correct as a good liberal is apparently more important than the lives of 7,000,000 Jews.
