16. The irony of it all is if even there WAS an honest challenge in the primary
Edited on Fri Sep-02-11 01:07 PM by Blue_Tires
I bet dollars to yen that the challenger would come from the RIGHT of Obama...That is the direction the party is heading...

All the people dreaming that some Democratic primary challenger would be a reflection of DU as a whole are way off the mark...
