I would also add that the XII Amendment makes the VP option less likely because it says that no person ineligible to the office of the president shall be eligible for VP. However, as we all "know" by now, the Constitution is a living document and surely we can't be bound by an 1804 amendment ratified by a bunch of white, slave-owning males.

Good point but it would seem that with Hawaii, Illinois and DC to choose from, I'm sure this will not be a challenge. Recall that Cheney "moved" back to Wyoming in 2000.

Nothing is inevitable but the trends are not good. For example, our education system at the university, secondary, and primary level is becoming increasingly progressive. As Lenin said, “Give me just one generation of youth, and I'll transform the whole world.” Second, the celebration of multiculturalism further divides the nation. See Arthur Schlesinger's "The Disuniting of America." We are a long way from de Tocqueville's description of what it meant to be "American" and I'm not taking about ethnicity. Lastly, if you haven't read Orwell's "1984" in awhile, I encourage you to do so. One of the Party's slogans was "Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past." The people today know less and less about the past so they don't understand the implications of tyranny so they won't until it is too late. As I said, the trends are not good.

I agree that Benghazi will be Hillary's downfall, but not because the GOP will exploit it. Rather, the "truth" about her failure will be "sadly" revealed by President Obama at the appropriate time - when Michelle is ready to "reluctantly become the party's candidate in its hour of need in order to continue the transformation that Barack has worked so hard for on your behalf these last 7 years." Does anyone really believe that Team Obama is going to go quietly into the night? There was a reason that Organizing for Action was announced by Michelle (watch the video on YouTube). What's more hip than the first black president? The first black female president. The demographics that supported Barack would certainly turn out in droves for Michelle. Only racists and sexist could possibly oppose her. She has no experience you say? That is why Barack will agree to be her running mate (the 22nd amendment doesn't address running for VP). Who says Barack hasn't learned anything from watching Putin operate (how is Medvedev these days?). Best of all, once Michelle wins, she could always resign and Barack could take over again because the 22nd Amendment only addresses being elected president, not assuming the office upon the resignation of the president. Far fetched you say? Not when you are trying to Fundamentally Transform America.
As sad as the CT murders are, the reality is that according to the Center for Disease Control, almost 50% more children aged 0-14 are killed in vehicular accidents than by violent acts (which are not all guns). In fact, almost as many children drown every year as are killed by violent acts. Why no presidential and congressional outrage over these deaths? Are children who die in cars and swimming pools less important than those killed by guns? Shouldn’t we be doing more to protect children in cars so that this carnage doesn’t continue? Perhaps we should put speed limiters on cars and require full roll cages, 4 point safety harnesses and helmets. Aren’t our children worth it? Or perhaps this isn't about kids at all.
