    And this is what you are satisfied with and support leading the country? Hmm. Not sure I could.

    Yes, I believe there was a new ruling and that some of them were able to reopen recently. Rowe vs Wade guarantees every woman in this country the right to reproductive care.

    I'd have to agree.

    McConnell is a back room, out of the limelight, tactical statesman able to broker deals that matter. In times like these, especially like these, these are skills and abilities worth their weight in gold, perhaps even so much so as to make up for Obama's lack of skills and abilities in these areas.

    We'll see. The future is not yet written.

    Let me put it this way TD, if I lived in Ky.I would not have voted for her--I would have stayed home, and apparently many Kentuckians did stay home.

    No more so than the 21st amendment guarantees that you will not live in a dry county, be denied service based upon your age or have the taxpayers pay your bar tab.

    It was't just Kentucky where DEMs stayed home--it was all 50 states--as epic if not more so than 2010.
    DEMs need the same civil war as GOPs went through but worse.

    You should have noticed the TEA-party and Libertarians-right have now been neutered and marginilized by RNC chief Priebus .

    Yes, they did. Perhaps if they had defended Obama's policies and the progressive agenda and been true to their beliefs and voting records, they would have fared better than they did with the phoney crap. Just saying!!
