58. It's good to see that some people here at DU actually...

get this. I've actually seen some people say they will vote Dem, except for Obama in 2012 (i.e. no vote)! It's absolutely perplexing that some don't understand the consequences of that type of thinking. It's simple; a non-vote is a vote for the opposition. That's exactly what happened this past election, and the people that didn't show up to vote Dem are the ones at fault for giving the Republicans the power to do what they are doing right now. Yet, those same people are the ones complaining about Obama. They don't seem to understand that they have taken away what little support Obama did have in the House. They took away Nancy Pelosi, who was the best progressive voice we had in the Congress, and left us with the-weakest-link - Harry Reid. Now, we are seeing the Governors re-districting their states to give the Republicans the edge (this is one of the biggest reasons that Republicans wanted to get their majority into State governments). We are in trouble folks, and it's very scary! We simply cannot allow the Republicans to remain in power. If you are truly paying attention, you should know this and will vote all Dem, including the Presidential ticket, no matter who that is.
