    He's still pretty sharp, but he's really too old.
    I hope they tear each other apart before than, though.

    Yeah, but Jerry Brown wont be considered a Washington croonie like Clinton.

    .....did you miss the speech where he teased Republicans that he was going to adopt the Simpson-Bowles plan as a way to cement his legacy through major compromise in order to get them to all come to a speech so that he could accuse them of wanting to kill grandmothers and children with downs syndrome on live national television?

I like it better once Cooper takes over.

    I'll sometimes go to Fox, but can't stay on it long as some of their commentators just bore me. However, Meghan Kelly has been very good and entertaining throughout the night when I switch over.

    I almost never listen to MSNBC, but I'm engaging in a little bit of Schadenfreude now and watching MSNBC. I'm kind of shocked to not see some nooses hanging out in the background.
    Van is hopeless. I just sat there jaw dropped when he said "they aren't showing up to vote!" Well, yes, Van. That's why you cannot drop average, middle age blue collar folks for young people and racial minorities and expect to have a coalition that keeps growing past 1 election. Welcome to 1968.

    First move: stop catering to young people. They never vote. Welcome them if they are energetic and vote, but don't bow down to them and sure as hell remove the Twitter/Youtube participation (especially during a debate).

    Step two: What was Joe Biden's one key contribution to the ticket? Average blue collar folk. Why are they important? Because they tend to be the folks the Democratic base likes to ignore over the past 50 years and they pay the price for it.

    I hope that argument is put out on the national stage for some time.

    What about the Governors Races? I think It wasn't a shock either, but to lose Illinois, Michigan, Maryland ... just to name a few.

    Heya Moot. Well, why did most of the left here then try to play like it wasn't? Or if they knew it to be so.....then why deny reality.

    To be honest no, but then again, I try to forget the Simpson-Bowles commision as it is a sore spot for me...

    Re: The Mid-Terms Results Thread

    Ah I love to hate the Turks, been watching them off and on... by the way Youtube has been amazing, they showed PBS, Turks, Fox, ABC, Jon Stewart they had an amazing group... can you believe that some of these guys think that had they only championed the progressive issues... Oh and now the Turk is saying Black people make better tapes than White people... I'm so confused, yet entertained... lol

    Is there a video going around that I don't know about?
