THAT's what you're gonna say was a good thing he did? Wow. Please, please, please...PUT THAT UP AS MUCH AS YOU CAN, EVERYWHERE YOU CAN, AND YELL IT AS LOUD AS YOU CAN.

And the Dem's will have a 70 seat majority in the Senate. Thanks.

It's easier to get on the ballot if you run within a major party.

That's why Ron Paul in 2008 ran in the GOP primary rather than as an independent candidate (which he did in 1988). It's very difficult to get on the ballot as an independent in many states. Ralph Nader's decision to run for US Senate in Connecticut in 2012 against Joe Lieberman rather than run for the presidency suggests that Nader in his old age has finally realized the difficulty of this. (And for once Nader might actually have a chance of winning an election he runs in....)

No, I mean the tax cuts which increased government revenue.

Tax cuts help, don't hurt, the economy. They always have.

Even Art Laffer said that there was a certain point at which tax cuts would cease to stimulate the economy.

She won't, it'll tear the Dem party apart, leaving room for the Reps. the DNC wouldn't let her, Bill wouldn't let her. And she knows better.

She'll be his successor in 2016.

I'll vote for Clinton in the Donk primary just to bust the BS in the office today, but no way I'll vote for her hairy ugly butt in the general.

No they ALWAYS have not. Keeping the Bush tax cuts in place...will cost us $4.4 TRILLION dollars over the next ten years 2010-2020. Where are all those deficit hawks and tea partiers with that little fact?

I agree it's not going to happen, though i wish it would. Obama is far too soft and hillary i don't think could handle it either. The democrats need a real fire in the belly, take no sh*t from the right, core democrat in office. Kucinich and Dean are the only two that come to mind.
