    Unless more comes out about Benghazi than already has I don't think it will hurt Clinton or Biden. Right now and even when fresh in the 2012 elections it did not seem to be an issue that resonates with voters.

    I wouldn't vote for Dean, but I don't expect him to run again at 68. If he did, I think he'd have a tough time winning the Democratic Primary even if Hillary and Biden didn't run. He'd be on a tier behind O'Malley, Hickenlooper, Cuomo, Warner, and Schweitzer if he ran. But then again, McCain won in 2008 in a similar situation, so you never know.

After the Bush Debacle Years, the Democrats could have run Dick Gephardt and stand a good chance at winning. You are placing way too much emphasis on Obama's skin color rather than the horrid chances at a Republican for the Office Of the Presidency had in 2007-2008.

    Romney lost the election for a large numbers of reasons.
    Oh, I agree. I'm certain every single member of the KKK who did vote, voted for McCain or Romney. But again, they're no better than the millions of racists who voted for Obama because he's black. Say, do you happen to have any video clips of prominent conservatives stating that they voted for McCain or Romney because they are white?

    McCain lost because he was conflicted. He also lost because the Left pegged him as a carryover from George Bush, and he failed to convince otherwise.

    Romney lost for many of the same reasons.

    Republicans will always lose until they call out the Democrats.

    Howard Dean will not be running, you can take that to the bank.

    If you think anyone votes on what Samuel Jackson said, you are deluded.

    McCain lost because he was conflicted. He also lost because the Left pegged him as a carryover from George Bush, and he failed to convince otherwise.

    Romney lost for many of the same reasons.
    And none of those reasons have to do with Obama being half black.

    Republicans will always lose until they call out the Democrats.
    Republicans will lose until they:

    (1) actually achieve a conservative goal (limit the size of government, significantly reduce divorce rates, etc)

    (2) convince the center that conservative goals are still worth reaching for

    Both are equally unlikely and have little to do with the behavior of the Democratic Party.

    I never said they did, but thanks for filling in for Disneydude. You're doing a great job in his absence.

    Except that you said Obama won because he was black.

Never mind that he wasn't qualified for the job.

    The wrong is all on you.
    How many people do you know personally that voted for Obama?

    That is the main reason he won. As for McCain and Romney, I was referring to what they did to defeat themselves.

    And why are you trying to fill in blanks where there aren't any?
