A lot of talk radio listeners who live in a bubble are going to be shocked in 2016, especially if Hillary wins. There will be a lot of people who think that Obama was just some magic candidate who people wanted to like and ignored the issues to vote for him, but ah-hah now he's termed out and Hillary is the nominee? Sweet, we got this, that old bat is going down.
Then they'll get swamped at the polls, look at the exits and see that once again the white vote ticked down another percentage or two, and uh-oh.
A rather large difference or two.
Hillary is a semi unattractive old white woman.
Barak was a very handsome young black man.
Black people voted for Barak at levels they have never voted before and fell off a bit in the second election.
Why do you think young and old highly unemployed colored people will storm the polls to vote for an old hag like Hillary? Hillary can't run on Obamas coattails, she must distance herself from his total failure with his base. To do that will offend the black folk who won't really care anyway.
Hillary can't get to far from ObamaCare with Hillary Care around her neck.
People who actually give a **** won't support her with her track record as SecState.
That said, the R's could **** up and pick a bad opponent. But anyone who sees Hillary as a shoe in is ignorant beyond belief. The old white girl won't get inner city folk all fired up. The days of the Magic Negro are over.
