2016
We were not even finished with re-electing Obama before speculation started about Biden and Clinton in 2016.

Chris Matthews, for one, is already bloviating as though it's unquestionably either Clinton or Biden.

WTF? I thought it was the Republican Party where you lost a primary and then waited your turn, while the Democratic Party left its wounded on the field and moved on to the next great thing.

And it's going to be the Democratic Party running the party's white anglo saxon war horses, while the Republicans are lifting up Rubio as the party's savior?

And I thought anointing Warren and Markey were bad--not because of Warren or Markey, mind you, but because our candidates should not be anointees.

It's infuriating to think how little say voters really have in who their party's candidates are.

Indeed, they may not have all that much say in which party their party really is. I, for one, never intended to vote Republicrat or Demlican. Yet, apparently, I have.

I thought I had your support... wth? just because rpannier says 'ooh, ooh, vote for me!' you're gonna toss me to the curb? I paid tons for this design, and now my only supporter is bailing on me! well, it's pretty at least. let's all ooh and ah at it!

6. But, you had not declared your candidacy when I gave rpannier my support.

Not to worry. I'll vote for both of you. You can do that, provided you have a photo I.D.--and I do!

Took me quite a while since I had lost my Social Security card, my passport expired; I had stopped keeping up my driver's license since I don't drive; and my married name doesn't appear on my birth record, but I did it.

I would not expect to be able to be vote twice in a general election. However, after all that, the least they can let me do is vote twice in a primary, right?

So, are you two planning to run on the D.U.2 ticket, or what?

3. If they adopt chained CPI
or raise the retirement age I will not support anyone affiliated with the outgoing Obama Administration. That includes Hillary.

4. With the exception of women's issues, she may be to the right not only of Obama 2008, but
also of McCain 2008.

You could not pay me to vote for her.
