36. I think the Democrats who talk about "electability" don't know what they are talking about.

 

Their basic discussion is that the candidate should be bland vanilla to be electable. But that has nothing to do with what ACTUALLY happens. It is the candidate who INSPIRES the voters who gets elected. They didn't feel Obama was electable. They don't have a clue but use that as the justification for their personal choice.

GO ELIZABETH. She is AWESOME! And gaining ground.
(and of course, it seems that every one of the Democratic candidates I see I love)
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
