TwistedIvory: I'd be okay with that. I'm not a huge Hilary fan.
Mr. Coffee Nerves: Well, all those women will automatically write in Palin's/Bachmann, then!
b2theory: Mr. Coffee Nerves: Well, all those women will automatically write in Palin's/Bachmann, then!You mean Bachmann/Palin.
TuteTibiImperes: An even more terrifying scenario: The GOP bypasses Santorum, Cruz, and RAND PAUL, and actually picks someone sane for the ticket - then the race might actually be close.
Prey4reign: TuteTibiImperes: An even more terrifying scenario: The GOP bypasses Santorum, Cruz, and RAND PAUL, and actually picks someone sane for the ticket - then the race might actually be close.How could they do that? I thought the GOP had driven all the sanity out of the rank and file over the past decade and a half.
log_jammin: I hope she doesn't run
ThatGuyFromTheInternet: log_jammin: I hope she doesn't runPart of me feels that too. Easy primary win, but a lot of folks not on the left would never vote for her. Plus, she is a big corporate/machine politician, and I want more radical. I 100% want Warren in 16, but I suspect she's getting Dem pressure not to.

Obama is squeaky clean, and they still want to impeach him. Imagine the blood in the water if she runs, let alone wins.
ThatGuyFromTheInternet: maybe in Warren.
bluorangefyre: Um, Chris Christie wins anyhow? Oh wait, the Republicans would actually have to get their heads out of the Koch Brothers' and Roger Ailes's asses first to nominate him.Anybody but Chris Christie becomes President, I'm dragging the family to Australia./no, not really//but that's the only person I'd trust with the keys to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. and the nuclear football
unlikely: Generous. What are you drinking tonight?
unlikely: log_jammin: 4/10Generous. What are you drinking tonight? Tonight I've found that the Bacardi pina colada mix is actually pretty good when you make it with equal parts Malibu and spiced 151.
Bucky Katt: What's scary about it?
Jim_Callahan: The GOP's trashed their own brand enough that it's pretty much the Democrats' race to lose at the national level.

Luneward: Jim_Callahan: The GOP's trashed their own brand enough that it's pretty much the Democrats' race to lose at the national level.Except the Democrats are very good at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. You should probably rethink your point. They already tried your line of thinking when they nominated Kerry. Nobody should have been able to lose to Bush... and yet he did. Of course now it is pretty much the entire Republican brand that is steep in crazy, not just Bush, but the point still stands.You don't go for 'good enough.' You need to make an effort. Get as good a candidate as you can manage, promote them while limiting 'foot in mouth' moments, get out the vote. Heck, take a look at what happened with Coakley in Massachusetts. She should have been able to trounce Scott Brown, but she ran a crap campaign and was on the receiving end.Apathy is death. And if Democrat apathy or overconfidence lets the nutjob brigade seize the reins of power, I think the country deserves the screwing it will get so that it might possibly learn its lesson for a change. (Though I sincerely doubt that. The power of reinforced narrative and doublethink is extraordinary.)
teto85: [2.bp.blogspot.com image 500x271]Tammy uses a wheelchair on occasion, a former President did that.Tammy flew combat missions and was shot at. One former President did that.Tammy was wounded in battle. That's happened to former Presidents.Tammy can kick ass. Some former Presidents did that.The republitards would have fits if she ran. NTTAWWT.And her husband is a military chaplin.
Lenny_da_Hog: log_jammin: I hope she doesn't runI hope she does. It will make the GOP use all of their A-list hate-nuttery bumper stickers up during the primaries and leave them looking like fools if they try to use it all again against whoever actually wins the nomination.Lightning rod effect.
NobleHam: from the Democratic President,
