A Hillary Clinton Match-Up With Marco Rubio Is a Scary Thought for Democrats

They use words like “historic” and “charismatic,” phrases like “great potential” and “million-dollar smile.” They notice audience members moved to tears by an American-dream-come-true success story. When they look at the cold, hard political math, they get uneasy.

An incipient sense of anxiety is tugging at some Democrats — a feeling tersely captured in four words from a blog post written recently by a seasoned party strategist in Florida: “Marco Rubio scares me.”

What is so unnerving to them at this early phase of the 2016 presidential campaign still seems, at worst, a distant danger: the prospect of a head-to-head general-election contest between Mr. Rubio, the Republican senator from Florida, and Hillary Rodham Clinton.

    I’ve changed political affiliation. I don’t like republicans that much either. Politicians are just stab in your back pleasurecrats who want to get the last rites on whatever is left of what used to be a free society, I hate them, I hate them with all of my heart. I want them to die in pain and suffering and misery. Bastards.

    Anybody running against that b***h would be a better choice than her. Do we really want another criminal in our white house? Anyway, hopefully she’ll either be in jail or eliminated long before the election comes along. My biggest fear is that she’ll get elected the same way islama(oobama) got elected, just because he is black or half black, she’ll get elected just because she’s a woman, well that’s what she comes across as sometimes. The stupid voters who put obama in office, TWICE, are still out there voting and they are the ones who scare me the most, low-information voters. God help us, please. L&L
