And so it begins. Hillary is setting up her campaign platform. As was the case when her husband ran for office, guns will be front and center as the boogeyman dejour. Though I am not happy about it, I think she has a very real shot at being the next POTUS and one who may heavily influence the right to bear arms in ways that will make Barack Obama look like an addled school boy. Condoleeza Rice would make a far better choice for our country but, she is clearly not interested in seeking office…Those who really are qualified and really would have the nation’s best interests at heart never are.
