    How could the GOP possibly lose under those circumstances?
    The problem the GOP has is that their base in the primaries force candidates to tack so far to the right and take such extreme positions that they poison them for a general election. If the Dems acted like the current Republican primary voters, they would demand that their candidate was either Dennis Kucinich or Bernie Sanders, or they would force whoever they did select to run on the same platform.

    In the post war era, there are only 2 candidates that did not run a center left or center right campaign and actually ended up winning: Ronald Reagan and Obama. Reagan was able to win running as a hardcore conservative because he was running against Carter who was widely perceived to have been a failed president and we were in the middle of the Iran Hostage Crisis and Carter looked totally impotent to do anything about it. Obama won because were in the midst of the worst recession and financial crisis since the Great Depression. Extraordinary circumstances like that are the only way a non-moderate ever gets elected (people forget that Bush ran on a center right platform in 2000). The Republicans think they need another Reagan when what they actually need is another Eisenhower.

    This kind of makes me think of the mayor of San Antonio, although I can't remember his name. ��
    Julian Castro. Who I am hoping will be Hilary's running mate. It would be an unstoppable ticket.

    #2, if it does that is a good reason to put a Democrat in the White House.
    The prime directive is to hold the Senate in 2014..
    We already know the GOP will move on impeachment if they take the Senate..
    Due to GM, the House is safe GOP until the next remaps .
