299. Maybe we should start working right now for a bona fide progressive
presidential candidate in 2016. That might be the best we can do at this point as Obama continues to move more and more to the right. Bernie would be about 74 then which would make him about the same age that Reagan was when he ran for his second term. And he would be about the age that Ron Paul is now and Paul is considered a serious GOP candidate. And if Hillary Clinton ran against Bernie in the primaries she couldn't use the age issue against Bernie because she would be pushing 70 herself.

Of course the problem with that is the way things are going we might not have much of a country left by 2016.
