Despite their last two presidential candidates running on a hard right platform and then losing, the majority of potential candidates for 2016 are those on the far right of the party. Meanwhile moderate candidates who could win, such as Jon Huntsman or Chris Christie, are slammed for being RINOs and too moderate.

For decades America has waged war on weaker nations on the pretext of maintaining global peace. The time has come for the most powerful nation on this planet earth to give the Gandhian principle of non-violence for settling disputes an honest chance.

Cameron shares Romney's liabilities as much as his strengths. Neither leader has made any convincing attempt to mitigate the message of austerity. In this global economy, any responsible politician knows government has got to spend less and/or bring in more.

All Change for the Republic: A Case for the Reformation of the Republican Party

The Republican Party is still relying on the youth of yesterday, which was captured by Ronald Reagan. These voters have grown older and matured into the backbone of the Republican vote. Barack Obama has managed to capture the youth of today who will become core Democrat voters.

Thomas Midlane | Posted 12.01.2013 | UK Politics
Thomas Midlane

The idea that this is a genuine exercise in localism just simply isn't credible, because the coalition is only interested in devolving power to two sectors: the private and the voluntary. If you want to know what Cameron and Osborne really think of local government, go and count the number of empty offices at council buildings across the land.

So what next for Hillary? In the short term we don't know, but in the long term she will run for President in 2016. This has always remained her ambition despite her 2008 defeat when she faced more than just a candidate. She lost out to an ideology, the hysteria, glitz and glamour. She and Bill know that she has the capability and financial backing to annihilate a Romney or McCain.
