I understand your feelings..I still think ACA was a split-decision favoring right-of-center..As with VRA..
I don't often say those kind of things, but when I do, I'll be buying some dos Aquis .

"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
Since I lean left, you might expect me to bring up Majority Leader Frist campaigning in South Dakota against Minority Leader Daschle, something unheard of before then or after..Imagine how unhinged McConnell would get if Reid ever came to Kentucky..
As it is, we are now frozen in time again with the filibuster until another very short-term agreement can be made during the "nuclear option" period of time in January..
I'm not sure the House can even come up with a bill for "keep your health plan" that can pass, unless Dems get skittish..
As for the Senate, I see the body as too complicated to do anything in these last 12 days of session this year..
Without an apparent Dem. opponent, I'd take a Christie/Rubio ticket,It keeps Democrats from acknowledging that the GOP's ideology is frequently compromised,
and it keeps Republicans from admitting the same in regard to Democrats. Frankly, I'm fine with that reality.
both infuriating TEApartiers still mad at Rubio for the Dream act the House is sitting on..
I was sick of Clinton before her husband opened his big mouth..
And she stabbed Biden in the back over bin Laden to boot..I'd prefer Gillibrand in a heartbeat (more like 2020)
I don't think the GOP is smart enough to look at Gov. Pence to go with Gov. Christie .

Warren has been under more pressure, being more active, for longer, than Obama was. That doesn't mean she won't pull the same stunt; that is always a possibility. But everyone else in the running is either nuts, or is only susceptible to pressure from money, not the people. So...
I think she's demonstrated well over the last few years, and that's why I'd consider her... but stranger things have happened.
Hillary, Joe, or Jeb seem to be likely candidates for me.
