12. She's sure no Soapy Williams.
Yes... I'm a bit biased since I knew Soapy and my uncle was in his administration from before the beginning to the end.

While I like Granholm, I also agree with you. She has assets -- intelligence, knowledge, appearance -- but just doesn't seem to capitalize on them in ways a professional politician should. She seems to fall a bit short even considering the implacable, regressive opposition she must face in the legislature.

She'd be a "kiss my sister" SCOTUS pick ... ho-hum. There are several exciting candidates that I'd more strongly prefer.

That said, I'd support her if she ran against Stabenow ... or, if Carl decides to retire, ran for his seat. In a choice between Levin and Granholm, I'd pick Levin. In a choice between Stabenow and Granholm, I'd pick Granholm - in a heartbeat.
