    It'd be the difference between a politician and a statesman. I sure hope that this is where McConnell will shine, and I wish him well on that path.

    Very true. Ohio would be a massive gain if he could deliver it.

    We will see, but I do not trust McConnell. Perhaps the only one I distrust less is Reid.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    We still have a Democrat in the White House. He's not going anywhere.

    And x factor drops in with his usual "how can I make this an equivalence" post. That dead horse of yours has long been buried.

    I have thoughts Grim--something you're not used to.
    All you've had to me all night is drive-by shots with no thoughts.
    Something we're all use to, both parties .

    The smaller the clown car from both sides, the better for the country, I'm thinking. Hopefully, cooler and more statesmanship heads will prevail for the better of the country.
