There Will be Clintons

Jon Stewart mocks the Clintons, the Bushes, Rick Perry, and the 2016-obsessed media

The Daily Show

Six months before the 2014 midterm elections, Jon Stewart is already sick of all the speculation about who will win... the 2016 presidential race. "Why speculate about the near-future when you can speculate about the far future," he groused at the start of Wednesday night's Daily Show. But he took a good-naturedly grumpy look at the early favorites in the 2016 race — and wasn't too pleased with what he saw. Another Clinton versus another Bush? Yawn. Rick Perry? His new "glasses of ensmartenment" aren't quite working, Stewart said. The good news? Well, if there is any, it's that unlike in Westeros, there are only two dynasties vying for America's throne. --Peter Weber
