5. My suggestion...

Pick someone from a swing state where we need to pick up a Senator (Ted Strickland-OH) (Kathleen Falk-WI) (etc.). Give them a couple of years on Team Obama and some Washington experience.

7. Not sure Solis was ever given the toolbox she needed to do her job. Sad because she is a
