Response to Parable Arable (Reply #42)

44. There's also the Hillary Factor

What good would it do for us to retain a slim majority in the Senate, gain one in the House, and then find ourselves unable to override certain vetoes from a Repug in the Oval Office? We need all three. Hillary has a much better chance to gain the WH than Warren does. Apart from that, objections are self defeating, therefore childish and petty. I'm a far lefty, flaming liberal - but not a pointy-headed one. All that counts is how far, how fast this country can be nudged forward. We have to WIN to do that.

I don't mean we should throw anyone (except R's and some blue dogs, maybe) under the bus. But let's not cut our own throat for the sake of ego either.
