annoys the living crap out of me, in spite of my liking her very much as a Senator and as a former Attorney General. She's very good at what she does, but she's not all that "likeable". She's got some baggage too, most distinctly as a former "dear friend" of Hillary Clinton, then a falling out that seemed very political in nature.

I think there are better choices without baggage.

It's not a bad thing that she's ultra-liberal, but it will make for a VERY TOUGH run for POTUS.

                            A leader who is also a boss requires extra traits, more than someone who is simply a leader.
