      I feel and by this I mean this is solely a hunch that there will be quite a while, perhaps 20 years, before another White, Christian, Straight, Non-Hispanic, Male will be elected President.  I am not sure why I feel this and I am not saying this is the way it should be, but this is just what I feel.  Based on this I feel the most likely to be President if a Republican wins in 2016 would be Marco Rubio.  Based on polls the most likely to be President if a Democrat wins in 2016 is Hillary Clinton, however I am not too sure of that outcome.  First, for a long time I had the feeling that she would not run.  Second, Hillary was considered the Democratic front runner for 2008, but eventually lost her bid for Democratic candidate to a relatively new comer, Barack Obama.  So, I am going with the possiblity of one of two other Democrats, either Kirsten Gillibrand of New York State or Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.  I’m not saying that these people should win.  Also, it may very well be that a governor might win.

I am hoping for a woman to be next President. It's about time we show rich white males that they don't have a lock on leadership anymore.

Rubio is too young and inexperienced... and he lost a lot of support over his position on immigration, so I can't see him being the Republican candidate... but hey, they went for McCain and Romney so who knows?  As for Hillary, if she runs, she'll likely be attacked relentlessly by Democrat opponents when they suddenly realize she has a record of ineptitude and dereliction of duty.  It will be bloody... and after the devastating impact of Obamacare, liberals will likely be on the outs for any but the hardliners leaving Warren and Gillibrand out in the cold.  It's looking like bright skies for Republicans in the coming elections.
