25. It's true it matters little and doesn't affect her as a senator.

 

and it would not matter if she were a senator for 18 years or 24 years.

but it does bring to mind fans pushing for an unvetted (nationally) person for 2016.

After all, it was that throwaway line by Al Gore in one of the debates that later indirectly derailed Mike Dukakis (ironic as that was 12 years later).

and also why democrats need to all stick together
because sure, Jeb or another repub is really going to clean up Wall Street or the bankers.

and those saying "fresh face needed" for 2016 well, sometimes the fresh face is really just the same as all the others anyhow.

Because that is the way real life works in America.

Where if you are from Mass, protecting a Mass firm is 100% okay.
But railing against a New York firm, is fair game for those not from New York.

Everyone has an angle, it is true.
Best not to be holier than thou if you are a politician. Too easy to find you are not.

(and if one says Obama or Hillary cedes to the other side, well, that is how it works.

But please admit that if Eric Cantor and John Boehner want something and democrats scream about it, but then find Elizabeth Warren wants the same thing, well it speaks volumes.
No matter why when where or how.

again, Lincoln showed that.
And Obama getting something no other president in 50 years has attained, even if its only 10% forward out of 100%, well 10% of something is indeed better than 100% of nothing.
And I don't want that 10% to go backward to nothing.
