    Interesting take.

    Personally I think both people who have children and people who don't are capable of making some really dumb decisions.

    And for some people, having children is the dumbest one of all.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    well I agree with that sentiment 100%

    but two unmarried childless women don't have the anchors to the future that I would like among Supreme Court Justices.

    Maybe your grandaddy's grandaddy's Democrat Party........

    to lay taxes to provide for the general welfare of the U.S.” that is to say “to lay taxes for the purpose of providing for the general welfare.” for the laying of taxes is the power and the general welfare the purpose for which the power is to be exercised. they are not to lay taxes ad libitum for any purpose they please but only to pay the debts or provide for the welfare of the Union. in like manner they are not to do anything they please to provide for the general welfare, but only to lay taxes for that purpose. to consider the latter phrase, not as describing the purpose of the first, but as giving a distinct & independent power to do any act they please, which might be for the good of the Union, would render all the preceding & subsequent enumerations of power completely useless. it would reduce the whole instrument to a single phrase, that of instituting a Congress with power to do whatever would be for the good of the U.S. and as they would be the sole judges of the good or evil, it would be also a power to do whatever evil they pleased"--Thomas Jefferson

    He destroys the entire Democrat Platform of today in one paragraph......gotta give Tom props.

    The GOP would have to screw up colossally in the primaries for me to vote to re-elect President Obama. Of course, I am not likely to vote at all unless the GOP offers an outstanding candidate.

    I am on the fence at this point. He has done many good things, but he has also dissappointed me in grave ways as well.

    What about you, my fellow bleeding heart? Will you vote for him?
    If only the candidates who have declared and/or formed exploratory committees so far are running, I would vote for Obama.

    Why should I care if he wins, if there isn't a better candidate in the race?
