9. Our Democratic Party "Grand Poo-Bah's" Didn't Build Party....they figured it would be

Obama and then Clinton II. Where is the Grooming and support for Fresh Faces? Who did the Obama Team support to take the Next Baton. Where is the GROWTH in Dem Ideals that would have had us with more than Clinton II?

We were "Had."

But...as they tell us...It was better than McCain/Palin/Romney! The lesser of evils because the DYNASTY was waiting in the Wings.

Does it matter if it's Hillary or Jeb Bush, anymore?

I can't see a difference at this point. I thought we'd maybe have a strong Third Party Challenger waiting in the wings by this time. But, it's easy to see how this is all working out.

It's going to take some time to dig us out of this. So, we've got to get to the polls and try to find what we can scrape together to vote for in our own Communities. (That isn't so easy these days, either, because support doesn't come from the Top of our Party for these efforts with the money).

Not giving up hope that we the people down here on the bottom can't turn things around...but, probably not in time for 2016 Presidential.
