25. I find this topic fascinating on a number of levels.

Ha! Democrats came within a hair, a storm and gaff of losing to the Republicans -- the folks who want to control your body, turn you away from the hospital and send your kid to war -- and now conciliatory attitudes are popping up all over the place like whack a mole. Folks, let's take Paul Krugman's advice and SCREW' EM.

Sheesh, you guys most have Stockholm Syndrome of some sort.

First off, such talk, so early, sure is a slap in the face to tall the marginalized Americans who -- minorities, women, gays who stepped up magnificently and won this election for Barry and for us.
"I think they earned a little political currency and Obama ought to spend it accordingly"

As illustrated by this thread, the differences between the two parties could not be more obvious --- I cannot imagine in a million years, folks on a Republican message board discussing the merits of putting a charismatic left winger in a cabinet position, let alone discussing it civilly.

Leave the Republican Party alone. Let them fix their own mess. They may be down but do not underestimate them. They are dangerous and will be sponsoring plenty of mean spirited-ness, cruelty and unkindness in the next four years. They may not have popular ideas but they have and can raise money in a heartbeat.

It has never been more clear that their party is one of fear, ours is a party of hope. They have done enough damage, we have to deal with. We cannot waste the time or energy fixing them.

I could not believe the faces of all those sad people for Mitt Romney of all people --- the most insidious, look you in the eye and lie, position changing, secretive candidate I have ever seen in my life.


Not only is the Republican party not ours or the President's to fix but do you really think that any fix or "reconciliatory" gesture or appointment would be truly welcome or interpreted as such? No way. I have seen this movie before. No fix or olive branch that comes from this side will ever be valued -- it has to come from within.

It is time for us to get things done.
