Net neutrality. Repealing corporate personhood for good. Strengthening Social Security. [View all]

Strengthening consumer protection laws. Getting rid of lobbyists. Getting the money out of politics. A real voting rights act.

I could go on and on, and haven't even touched on some of the most important things, really. (Fracking, for example). These should be the Democratic party platform moving forward. I am praying for a Democratic renaissance in 2014 into 2016. If it doesn't happen, I can guarantee the party will split. I, for one, am holding onto hope with my fingernails. I need some hope and change. Yes, President Obama did some great things…he also did some things that make me shake my head. This isn't about him. This is about our future. Individually and collectively.

These things I know:
It can't be Hillary, no matter how hard the media and the Clinton machine want it to be. 'Nuff said on that.
I am lukewarm on Brian Schwitzer…liked him a lot several years ago, but I have some questions, and he needs more vetting.
I would go 100% with Bernie Sanders if he became a Democrat, above all others.
And of course, Elizabeth Warren, if she were ready and able to win.

I am interested if anyone has other ideas I'm missing. Off to take a shower, back in a few.
