Hillary will almost certainly win the presidency in 2016.  If she continues on her merry Third Way I'm not as confident she'll win in 2020 or even be the Democratic Party candidate.  As both Trump and Sanders have shown a sizable minority of people are Fed Up and angry with a system that is actively screwing them.

She believed in nothing; only her skepticism kept her from being an atheist. -- Jean-Paul Sartre

My biggest problem with HRC is that FBI investigation hanging over her head. That could be a very short leash she's on, incentive to keep her on program, whose one might ask but not be permitted to know.
Even aside from that she defines beholden to the PTB in every way.

Philly is going to look like Camp Lejeune come convention day, likewise for the Republicans.

I believe what we are witnessing is no less than the status quo tearing itself apart. Much less messy than when others have to do it from the outside, better just wait and prepare to pick up the pieces after the storm has blown out.

If general electiono are cancelled at the tail end of a second term, does leadership become automatically extended?
