as leaders go, I'd consider him as incompetent as the best of them.

That's impressive. The only incompetence I see there is the failure of her digital media communications director's failure to lock up that domain name.

I'll let tw speak to over-all incompetence. I just found it really amusing that she or her people missed a pretty basic step.

The GOP cracks me up sometimes. Here's a page full of laffs for you:

The Stranger Obtains a Secret Transcript of the Koch Brothers’ Auditioning of Republican Candidates

Here's a taste:

Quote:
The Koch brothers, who will spend almost $900 million on this presidential campaign, have been auditioning Republican candidates in Dana Point, California.

Lights up on SCOTT WALKER, TED CRUZ, RAND PAUL, MARCO RUBIO, and JEB BUSH huddled under one side of a large proscenium. They are auditioning for the role of Republican Jesus Christ Superstar. CHARLES and DAVID KOCH, who plan to spend $889 million on this election, approach the lectern. The crowd falls silent as the Koch brothers proceed to unzip their people suits and fuse into a two-headed jar of marshmallow fluff, their natural form.

Koch Bros: Good evening and welcome to this secretive billionaire summit. We all know why we're here: to witness five free-market gladiators battling it out for a chance to win a fraction of our inherited wealth. How about wealth, huh?

The crowd goes wild.

Koch Bros: First up will be Señor Rubio from Florida.

The Koch brothers take a seat on a throne made of Doritos.

Marco Rubio: It's Senator Rubio. Not Señor.
The whole short article is quite funny.

That would be pretty funny if it weren't true.

Just wait for the match up of Carley Fiorena and Hillary...
There will be only one over-arching debate issue:

This Is How Much Hillary Clinton’s Pantsuit Costs
Time - David Kaiser - 5/28/15

Dressing like a presidential hopeful is not cheap

As Hillary Clinton graces stage after stage during her 2016 presidential campaign,
she’s sure to be wearing her signature look: the pantsuit.<snip>

Maybe if she answered question by the press, they would have something else to write about.

Nothing good will come from her. She's a deceitful, power-hungry egomaniac. This is all about winning and power - nothing to do with really wanting to lead.

Right now she is running like an incumbent.
