    I think you're right. So, why do they support the leadership?

    Lack of choice. Being an incumbent is such an advantage that it is hard to get rid of them. Removing an entrenched legislator means losing seniority priveleges for your district and the goodies that come with that extra power. Also dependence on, and/or fear of, big corporations with big campaign money.

    That sounds to me like a good argument for term limits or for redistricting.

    Maybe for both.

    I thought folks did this with a holster as to not allow it to printed on their jacket.
    I have a great North Face for that--lots of pockets .

    Sen. Harkin of Iowa knew when to say when--not seven termer Hatch though.
    Harkin's 40th steak fry was full of tears this past weekend.

    Term limits have been a GOP tool Americans have stupidly succombed to since 1994, the class of Boehner and 2010.
    Notice how Boehner has kept that 12-year promise--at least retiring Sen. Coburn did .

    There was a strong "anyone but Romney" contingent during the Repub primaries. I wouldn't be surprised if there's an "anyone but Hillary" contingent in the Democratic Party. She's really quite awful.
    Trump Attacked A Syrian Airfield. Trump will be a one-term president.

    Have you ever heard of a pocket pistol ? That's what pockets are for.

    I checked one out the other night.
    If using a pocket, I'd still prefer one in a jacket--just faster for me.
    Plus your hand in the jacket is ready to roll at all times . .

    Which is why GOPs are promoting anyone but Clinton.
    Exactly why I'm promoting Cruz .

    She was 3rd in Iowa in 2008.
    she's up by 59 points right now .
