Jon Huntsman Explored Independent 2016 Bid

The Huntsman camp is downplaying it, but there were discussions about a 2016 presidential run for the 2012 Republican candidate. The former Utah governor declined to comment for the record. His daughter, MSNBC co-host Abby Huntsman Livingston, who was a surrogate for Huntsman’s campaign in 2012, said in an email that her father is “primarily [...]

The other day on his podcast, Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks bragged that he’s never been wrong when betting on the winner of presidential elections, then offered this: “If you’ve got Rand Paul running on a ‘Let’s stop messing around in the Middle East because we’re getting killed, and it’s doing absolutely no good [...]

Apologies if you’ve heard this one before. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) dials the customer service number for his cell provider. An automated voice on the other end says, “Press one for English and two for Spanish. Para Espanol, oprime el dos.” Sanders replies, “Fine, but first let me tell you about the middle class…” No [...]

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is making 2016 noises.  He says he’ll decide next year. Do you have the capacity, as an executive, to look at the whole battlefield and to see all the issues in play and how they integrate with each other?” he said. “And one of the things that I learned in [...]

There was very little news to come out of Hillary Clinton’s appearance at Sen. Tom Harkin’s (D-Iowa) Iowa Steak Fry this weekend, other than the fact that Hillary was at it, but the political press did decide to fixate on one quote from the event, a quote that wasn’t from her, and wasn’t really news.

She’s already decided, or so it seems. She is building stamina through tough new workouts with a personal trainer and yoga.

And she is reviewing who’s who in the Democratic Party in Iowa, a crucial early voting state in the presidential cycle… [...]

Just what we need, a bunch of politicians paying “Can You Top This” with warmongering. Wednesday morning anonymous former aides to Hillary Clinton were distancing the presumptive 2016 presidential candidate from President Barack Obama, just hours before his scheduled address outlining military action against ISIS. Anonymity! Is there anything it can’t do? “You never want [...]

John Kerry 2016?

“I’m sort of thinking 2016, okay?” sounded like a joke. But should it be? It’s a very narrow field, with Hillary Clinton, Martin O’Malley and Bernie Sanders. Maybe 2016 is Kerry’s year. Now read this:Tomasky: Please Let’s Not Destroy ISIS (Sep 15, 2014) Schieffer To Kerry: ‘Are We At War’? (Sep 14, 2014) Kerry Won’t [...]

Mitt Romney is continuing his “I lost the presidency but I should have won” tour. Rather than show humility at having lost, he continues to tell the world how much better things would be had we won. “No question about that in my mind. The American people may disagree with me,” Romney said in a [...]

Jeb Sending 2016 Signals

The Jeb Bush is asking advisers not to commit to other candidates yet, a sign that he has not made a final decision about a 2016 run. He’ll make his decision after the November election. “The message from Mr. Bush’s inner circle during the past few months is in part an effort to bat down [...]
