“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Clinton v Christie in 2016 already?

Based on what I'm seeing in the media today, including Drudge, it's as if Hillary Clinton and Chris Christie have already been nominated to represent their respective parties in the presidential race of 2016.

I don't know if I can get behind another moderate, go-along republican. Dole, Bush, McCain, and Romney were all moderate, go-along republicans and I wasn't enthusiastic about any of them. Christie would have to tack significantly to the right, maybe even toward a more libertarian view for me to actively support his campaign.

If he moves toward the center, which is the prescribed MO of GOP candidates who want to win general elections, then I might sit this one out.
