Hillary Clinton can hear footsteps coming from behind

Hillary Clinton will undoubtedly face a challenger in her quest to win the Democratic nomination for president in 2016. With the increased media scrutiny of Ms. Clinton's finances, years as secretary of state and the White House years with her husband, she is vulnerable.

Enter liberal Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren as Hillary clashes with the press defending her image. Warren is the darling of the far left and she fits the bill to a tee. Hillary's bulging campaign war chest may be her best defense against any legitimate contender including VP Joe Biden.

Michael Barone, senior political analyst for the Washington Examiner says of Warren, "She faces a certain amount of quandary in the Democratic primaries even though she starts in with support from a majority of voters." Barone was speaking on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

'"But it's also clear that the rising tide of sentiment in the Democratic Party is on the left,'' he said Monday. She could be the “go to” replacement for Hillary if she indeed stumbles and her brand becomes tiresome or controversial. So Warren could enter as a third candidate.

Barone continued, "We've seen that that could hurt the Democrats as it did in 2000 when Ralph Nader got 3 percent of the vote rather than going to Al Gore." It also lost George H. W. Bush's second-term bid when Ross Perot entered the race and got a considerable percentage of mostly Bush votes. It's a long way to November, 2016, but these possibles must be addressed by the Clinton campaign. She is the one spotlighted politician at this time while the Republicans stay away from the cameras and hype.
