Would this be the millions who are having their policies cancelled due to the ACA, or the millions who are seeing their premiums skyrocket, or the other millions more who cant get insurance cause the government website doesnt work?

I wonder how many of these tens of millions are going to go out and vote Democratic, thus proving americans are stupid..

All of them, unless the republicans can find a moderate candidate to run.

The ignorance of even imagining that the Republican Party is anything remotely like it was even twenty years ago is beyond stupid. Just because a name is intact, does not mean the ideology has remained. The Tea Party hijacked any remnants of what was left of the party...which was not very much anyway.

My guess: 2014 and 2016 will see the Libertarian leaning Republicans get more attention or the Rubio types. We are not looking for an over the edge right wing candidate, but one that can work with both sides, something our present administration is unable to do.

What would be issues to work with both sides? What would you want a candidate to run on?
