"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

Guys?

Thought you were not fond of dynasties. We sort of went to war over it?

Big surprise. The Clintoons (and a plastic surgeon or two) have been grooming this little dunce for politics since day one.

And just like her mother she is planning to run on her 'qualifications' to hold such a position. You know, she will run on her 'diplomacy' and 'military' experience. Along with all of her experience at 'international affairs' and 'economics'.
 
She is a real winner. Just like her mother.
 
Does anyone doubt that in the year 3000 John McCain and Harry Reid/Pelosi will all be running for their 200th term in office, and that Lincoln Clinton (yes, she had a kid and named him Lincoln) will be running for President against Harriet Bush? (yes, he had a kid and named her Harriet)

It's all about who you know. I honestly don't believe Bush Jr would have had enough exposure to become president if not for his last name.

Can you expand please? Curious about your thinking here - and no, I rarely attack!  :laugh:

I liked GWB - he had the art of retail politics down to a science (just as Bill Clinton did). He was a decent governor in his own right. I do think he'd have got traction anyway, though maybe less than if Daddy was not being VP and President.

I'm not saying that he wasn't qualified, just that I don't think he would have been well known enough to be a viable candidate for the Republicans. Him being the son of a former president gave him a lot of name recognition. There are lots of good candidates out there that will never get a chance to run just because they don't know/aren't in good with the right people.

Makes sense. A bit of name recognition is worth millions in ads!

Thank you!  :beer:

And the wannabe runaway ski bum Mark Mezvinsky is the father? That is a miracle!
