How long can the Republicans continue with this nonsense?

If only they had been so diligent in finding out how Bush and Cheney
let some people knock down a couple of skyscrapers in New York.

two questions for Hillary supporters......

I can understand why Bill Clinton might stay out of the limelight during the primaries.

But during the general election, his ability to frame issues would make him a powerful asset.

The republicans are easily 100 times crazier than they were when he was President.
He could slice them to ribbons.

Do you think that the Big Dog will be the primary attack dog in the general if she wins the nomination?

Just being the first "First Gentleman" would be pretty amazing.

Former President in that role?

What do think his role would be?

Hillary Clinton - Nowhere to go but down

No one on the planet is more famous.

Almost all of the potential opponents are unknowns

Her positions have changed somewhat but so has the country.

She seems to be using the same playbook of inevitability and
that surprises me.

Why does Team Hillary ALWAYS take the low road

When asked about concern at Team Clinton about Sanders' surge, McCaskill responds:

"No, I think the media is giving Bernie a pass right now.
I very rarely read in any coverage of Bernie that he's a socialist."

She is using the term "Socialist" in the same manner as the right wing.......as a slur.

Reminds me of her campaign against President Obama.

media anointed candidates and the Dean scream

Until the 2004 Dean campaign, I always imagined that a candidate who challenged the party power structure could emerge and take a party nomination.

At this point, with money controlling both parties, I have come to believe that only a progressive billionaire could change the course of the US.

The cliche "Money Talks" is more than just a cliche.

Roosevelt and Kennedy arrived with the ability to be sure, but the money behind them is part of the invisible mantle of power.

Even buffoons like Donald Trump start out on third base. We are fortunate that he lacks the courage to actually put his ass on the line.

Imagine a George Bush candidacy without the family prestige and money.
I can still barely believe it, even with his family advantages, and I lived through it.

Walk to the podium with a giant wallet in your back pocket and the media kneel.

my prediction for the fiscal cliff vote in the house......

The 27 republicans who will not be returning will vote for it, along with a strong majority of Democrats. No returning Repubs will vote for it.

If it doesn't pass because it doesn't get quite enough support among Democrats, then the Repubs will try to blame the Democrats.

I almost hate to say it, but....

Republicans seem to be running scared on all fronts, and I'm starting to believe that this is a real turning point. Movements start almost instantaneously in the age of twitter and facebook.....then politicians and corporations run for cover.

I'm almost optimistic.

Is there a type of camera that is capable of capturing Mitt Romney telling the truth...?

Yes.....it's called a hidden camera.
