I could see Texas becoming another Kalifornia if she was elected. But I don't think so would ever get elected there...people in Texas aren't stupid

why on earth would she want to run for gov. of texas? i mean really, think about it. first, and i mean no disrespect to the people of texas, but governorship is small time compared to a U.S. senator. hmmmm. run a state or run the country? which do you think she'd want. she wouldn't get the power or the exposure that she craves as governor of texas. second, her next move is for the presidency. i firmly believe that she only became a senator to help ease her way into politics because she'd have a better chance at the presidency than without any political experience at all. this woman would love to be king of the world. do you really think texas is big enough for her?

ARLady, surely you are just jokeing..... This list of rules will apply to each person as they enter the state of Texas. It's called a 'gravel road'. I drive a pickup truck because I need it. No matter how slow you drive, you're going to get dust on your Lexus. Drive it or get it out of the way. We all started hunting and fishing when we were nine years old. Yeah, we saw Bambi. We got over it. Any references to "corn fed" when talking about our women will get your butt kicked ... by our women. Go ahead and bring your $800 Orvis Fly Rod. Don't cry to us if a flathead breaks it off at the handle. We have a name for that little 13-inch trout you fish for...bait. Pull your droopy pants up. You look like an idiot. If that cell phone rings while a flock of dove are coming in, we will shoot it. You might hope you don't have it up to your ear at the time. That's right. Whiskey is only two bucks. We can buy a fifth for what you paid for that shot in the airport. High School Football is as important here as the Lakers and the Knicks...and a dang sight more fun to watch. No, there's no "Vegetarian Special" on the menu. Order steak. Order it rare. Or, you can order the Chef's Salad and pick off the two pounds of ham and turkey. Yeah, we have sweet tea. It comes in a glass with two packets of sugar and a long spoon. You bring Coke into my house, it better be brown, wet, and served over ice. So you have a sixty-thousand dollar car. We're real impressed. We have quarter-million-dollar cotton strippers that we drive three weeks a year. Let's get this straight. We have one stoplight in town. We stop when it's red. We may even stop when it's yellow. Our women hunt, fish, and drive trucks - because they want to. So, you're a feminist. Isn't that cute? Yeah, we eat catfish, carp, and crawdads. You really want sushi and caviar? It's available at the bait shop. They are pigs, cattle and oil wells. That's what they smell like. Get over it. Don't like it? I-40 and I-10 go east and west; I-35 goes north and south. Pick one. The "Opener" refers to the first day of deer season. It's a religious holiday held the closest Saturday to the first of November. So every person in every pickup waves. It's called being friendly. Try to understand the concept. Yeah, we have golf courses. Don't hit in the water hazards - it spooks the fish. We have more Navy, Marines, Air Force and Army than any other state, so, "Don't Mess With Texas". If you do it will get your butt kicked by the best! Our military is only used as a back up. Per capita, each man, woman and child owns at least two firearms and has taken a NRA Certified Shooter Education Course. Also remember what President Sam Houston once said, "Texas can make it without the United States, but the United States cannot make it without Texas." ...fullclip

She doesn't want Bush's old job . She wants his CURRENT one . Seriously she got something like 22% in a recent poll asking who will be the next Democratic candidate . ALGORE just beat her with 25% and Tom Dashel came in third with 15% or so .

ARLady wrote, quite rightly - “but governorship is small time compared to a U.S. senator”. That’s very true if you consider “big time” to be [b]national[/b] media exposure. And that is probably what Hillary is after, so that's why I say ARLady is right. On the other hand, if you think “big time” is actual having power, and then ending up as President, Governors win every time. Individual Senators, especially those without the seniority to be the Chair of a major committee, control relatively little staff, have rather modest office budgets (modest to them, not to us), no patronage, and little power over how the executive branch goes about it’s daily business. Sure, any one Senator can bring the place to a halt, but they soon learn to play with the team if the want to get something done that they care about. Being a Senator is about making nice-nice with the other kids in the sandbox. Governors however control, in some cases hundreds of thousands of employees, have thousands of patronage positions to fill, appoint regulatory board members, select state vendors, usually head their political party, and have a veto. They also have the power to pardon, appoint judges, and in many states are the chief LEO. They’ve got their hands on the real “levers”. As an example here are the Presidents in the last 100 years who went from being Gov. to President - William McKinley Theodore Roosevelt Woodrow Wilson Calvin Coolidge Franklin D. Roosevelt Jimmy Carter Ronald Reagan Bill Clinton George W Bush Here are the Presidents who went from Senator to President - Warren G. Harding John F. Kennedy This list excludes those Presidents who were first a Vice-President, had no prior political office, or came into office via Congressional action. (Truman, Eisenhower, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, George H. W. Bush) We should all be glad that the Hildebeast didn’t decide to run for Governor of a left leaning state. Which one? Do you think she would have cared? After all, when you’re from “nowhere” you can be from anywhere. Texas - Hillary - hahahah. Now if she were running in my state, I'd be scared. I'd also be moving.

Hillary would suffer an unholy thrashing if she tried to run for anything in Texas. But for anyone who wants to win the White House, a governor's office is a good way to get there. Look at history: In the past thirty years, [b]no one[/b] has gone directly from the Senate to the White House. [b]All[/b] of the winning candidates have been either incumbents (Johnson, Nixon, Reagan, Clinton), governors (Carter, Reagan, Clinton, Bush II) or VPs (Nixon, Bush I). In all of the 20th century, only two men went straight from the Senate to the presidency: JFK, who won by the narrowest of margins, and Warren Harding, who was governor of Ohio before his election to the Senate.

first of all, why would what i posted have been joking? second, this woman doesn't want to hop around on the beaten path. she wants to be president and she wants to be president now. if she thought she could have succeeded, she would have loved to make it 3 clinton administrations. don't kid yourself. the rest of the pack may take the proven road, but this woman won't. it would actually hurt her to move from a position of national media exposure to one where no one but the texans will care (except when she pretends she's still a U.S. senator). she'll have more momentum coming straight from the national spotlight as senator as she makes her move towards the presidency. [i]for this woman[/i], governor of texas would actually be a step backward. she needs to make her bid for the presidency when she's still "popular". she won't have that popularity as texas's governor. although i would love to see her try!

Man its true!!! (AP WIRE) - In a recent interview with the former First Lady she eluded to her interest in heading south. New Yorkers, are a bit stunned at the revalation from their junior Senator - "I hear they have really big Large Mouth Bass...I'd fit right in." President Clinton commented on his wifes thoughts, "Sure, I'll support her, however I've been advised that taking Interstate 30 through Arkansas into Texas is outta the question - they wont let me back into Arkansas." "I'd like to make a run for Governor of Texas," quipped the Senator, "...after all, I rigged the NY election, I'd consider Texas just another small step in advancing my career as a carpetbagger." According to Texas officials, sandbag and barbedwire defenses have been erected around the boarder of the entire state. Local Sheriff Nathanial Steer stated, "We'll do whatever we can to prevent this from happening, trouble is we expect some sort of disguise - most likely along the lines of a large fat ass cow, or something like that. Animal control should be able to sedate her if necessary." He continued, "...as for the former President, he shouldnt be too hard to locate, we're just looking for the intern strapped to his zipper." God bless TEXAS, and God help NY. [;)]

I generally need to spend weeks in deep contemplative soul searching to find a single positive thing to say about the junior shithole from NY, and I always come to a single thing.....she is rather shrewd. Yes, she wants to be president now....you can practically read it off her face. Up until recently, she's been making all the right moves, and doing the right things to keep in the public spotlight....however.... Her party does not see her as a viable candidate. While yes, she is very well known, and somewhat press-savvy.....she brings to the table the votes of liberals and feminists. Translation - she brings to the table what any other high profile Dem candidate can bring, which means nothing. What she also brings to the table, is an extreme level of partisanship. You need two things to guarantee a win in the presidential election....the swing vote and the moderate opposition vote. It is rather difficult to predict the swing vote....but there is NO WAY she would carry the moderate op vote. She is too partisan, and too tied into issues of the past presidency. Which, at this time, makes her more of a liability than an asset to the part in a presidential bid.
don't kid yourself. the rest of the pack may take the proven road, but this woman won't. it would actually hurt her to move from a position of national media exposure to one where no one but the texans will care (except when she pretends she's still a U.S. senator).

One could almost draw a parallel with Jesse Venture. He went from a high profile, national media exposure venture, to a governorship. He's still gotten quite a bit of media exposure since stepping 'down' in prominence to govern Minnesota. The thing is.....Hillary doesn't NEED media exposure, she's had it in spades for about ten YEARS now. No one is going to forget the Wicked Bitch of the East. What Texas, if handled properly, gets her is something more vital than simple media exposure.....it gets her presidential votes.
she'll have more momentum coming straight from the national spotlight as senator as she makes her move towards the presidency. [i]for this woman[/i], governor of texas would actually be a step backward. she needs to make her bid for the presidency when she's still "popular". she won't have that popularity as texas's governor. although i would love to see her try!

It all depends on how you look at it. Momentum is good, but you also need to shore up your support base. Of course....I can pretty much take back every single thing I said in this post based on one fact.....if she's stupid enough to think she has a shot of winning in Texas.....
