    NOW you think rich people with offshore bank accounts are evil. If only you had realized this when Romney was your guy.

Warren, perhaps?
    Not someone young. Both parties have now thrown out the idea of having a young up and comer in the spot of death. Someone old that will get the base excited but has generally outlived their usefulness. Harry Reid?

    What a load of crap. Most happened to like Obama, who is technically only half-black btw, over McCain and Romney. Ok? They prefer the Democrats in general regardless because, as I said, civil reform is a key issue in that demographic, and the Democrats, at least in rhetoric, are strong on civil issues.

    You think if the GOP puts up Ben Carson or something that they will all come running? Cause that's a bubble that will be burst rather quickly.

    I can't see a Clinton/Reid ticket being successful in the primaries much less the general. I sure as hell wouldn't vote for that and most people I know, both left and right, wouldn't either. Terrible ticket with two old guard establishment politicians very obviously deep in the pocket of the corporate class. The new generation of voters, who seem to be largely social/economic progressives and civil libertarians, will not go for that. And I frankly can't blame them.

    I say that the Democrats and the Republicans are going to each tug so hard at the Hispanics in an effort to grab their votes that the Hispanics will feel like wishbones (do you know what a wishbone is? it's a bone that two people tug on until it breaks in half) , and you think that translates to "Hispanics are stupid!".

    OMG. Go away, please. Your obnoxious partisan posts make me ill.

    Of course. It had nothing to do with race. That's why so many of them voted for the first time in their lives. Perhaps they only determined what civil reform was in 2008.

    Surely someone smart in your GOP has thought the same thing about Governors Sandoval and Martinez.
    Both parties think the same way in this regard.
    These two would especially bite into Obama states of NV, NM and CO--and keep AZ red, the southwest connection .

    Not to mention the rest of the Nation.
