    I always thought Texas' annoying little sister was Oklahoma. North Carolina seems like the younger, slightly less attractive girl with low self-esteem that Texas took Junior prom and was subsequently molested by Texas later that night on the school library on a stack of crumpled National Geographics. She never told anyone because she felt Texas was way out of her league to begin with and no one else would ever bother to give her that same level of attention. North Carolina now buries her shame with a crystal meth addiction and unprotected sex with multiple partners.

    No, no, no. You're all wrong. Oklahoma is Texas's juvenile delinquent cousin. He engages in petty theft and mouths off to his mom in an effort to impress Texas but Texas never notices.

    Hmm. I'll accept that.

    Louisiana must be Texas' deadbeat uncle who attempts to get everyone caught in a pyramid scheme by playing on their sympathies because he almost drowned as a kid.

    Oh, bless your heart. To be fair, though (and to paraphrase a line from the film Stage Beauty) I've always felt that whenever North Carolina was about to do something truly awful, they can always say that South Carolina has been doing it for years.

    That's true. North Carolina is best Carolina. And we can always say at least we've never tried to fly the Confederate flag at the capitol building.

    So I went over stuff to confirm last night, and my recollections are correct.

    At least for the time being, in a state-by-state analysis, Hillary Clinton would beat anyone with a decent electoral vote. Her toughest challenge from a Republican is Chris Christie, who's struggles against other Republicans are mostly confined to places we'd assume would never vote for Clinton anyhow. Christie thoroughly beats Joe Biden.

    Trailing behind Christie are Marco Rubio and Rand Paul, who are so close that it's hard to say who's ahead with such early, fuzzy data. Notably, however, both of them score poorly enough to actually have a real contest with Joe Biden, unlike Christie.

    All the rest of the Republicans are in a reather undifferentiated pile of low scores. The same can be said of Democrats, with Clinton in the lead, Biden in a distant second place, and everyone else in an equally distant third place.
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    Hillary polls well because being Sec. State is a non partisan position where you don't have to comment on domestic policy.

    As long as she remains vague to the voting public she will continue to poll well.

    The Dem congress generally gets fawning coverage in the MSM, as they have lately due to the immigration reform push (they are also basking in the reflected glow of the SSM Scotus decision). Only Obama has been involved in the scandals so it makes sense that only his numbers are dropping.

    I had a long post explaining all this but I lost it, and am too lazy to completely redo it.

    Hillary is also not the once in a generation political talent that Obama is.

    She's not as smart, as good a speaker, or as measured and calculating.

    Also, we know what we're going to get with a Hillary candidacy (generally) because we've already seen one.

    For example: Biden has had to make his big public stand against guns while Hillary has not.

    It's not hard to see how that situation (and others like it) massively benefit her polling numbers.
