Will the Dems in 2015 allow "the perfect to become the enemy of the good"?

I've checked in a couple of times today to take the pulse of this board in reaction to Hillary announcing her candidacy and I was hoping that the Dems in 2015 won't permit themselves to become entrenched to the point that we, (to borrow a much maligned phrase from President Obama), " allow the perfect to become the enemy of the necessity".

And yes I meant to say 2015, and not 2016 because if we play out cards right and screw things up enough, this thing could be over with before 2016 gets here.

The GOP which holds one BS convention, forum, pep rally, symposium etc, a month, will take their F'd Up candidates warts and all, but for some strange reason, our party is always in search of that elusive candidate who represents the perfect Dem whose just there waiting on the sidelines to throw their hat in the ring, and take on the F'd up job of being a candidate for the President of the United States in his modern era of 24/7, 2 year campaigning/fundraising, Koch Bros financed sandbagging, gotcha politics, in the era where a lie can make it around the world before the truth can get its pants on. There is NO perfect candidate for the Democratic nomination, whomever that might be if he or she exists at all. We have to accept the fact that a good percentage of our party is too busy Keeping Up With the Kardashians to bother with knowing who the current Vice President of our country is.

There is too much at state with the way the likes of groups like ALEC and the Koch Bros have managed to turn their minorities numbers into majorities legislature office holders in so many Red States by rewriting the rules in less than a decade. And if they are permitted to take the one remaining obstacle in their way, The Presidency, there may be no way of EVER undoing the havoc they might be able to reap on this nation and the world, in my lifetime with them in charge of the SCOTUS. Get over it people. The God, Guns, and Gold Party are in it to win it in 2016. We need to get behind the one candidate who wants the job, and is capable of beating whatever candidate that other party puts out and get excited about it, and quit your bitchin.
