  •  Yep. Now we have to (5+ / 0-)

    figure out who would be a decent candidate for 2016.  And there isn't a bright star among the teeming masses right now.  A few glimmers maybe, but nothing special.

      in Florida, first we have to vote Rick Scott out of office in two years. That's the next big one for us. However, the fact that his attempts to change the state Constitution and get rid of the judges who are fair and not in his pocket gives me hope for that. Just need a good person to run against him.

        look what disasters happened when so many Dems slept through 2010 -- all those horrible Republican governors and Secretaries of State and state legislatures that popped up like a bunch of poison mushrooms, out of the ALEC/Koch/dark money $$$h*T !!!!

        let's see how complacent folks are by 2014, if the still-RED House has succeeded in stifling Obama's work as well as they did before 2010!?!?  

        I don't agree with a lot of PBO's more conservative instincts, but getting mad at HIM when the R's were so obviously, openly & gleefully NOT cooperating, no matter what he offered to roll on (and sometimes did unilaterally! argh!!) was just SO STUPID!

          the next election is a Democratic shoo-in, that we don't need to have a stellar candidate because they'll automatically win.

          I think resting on our laurels  or getting complacent will get us in trouble.

          They aren't going to let up, and neither should we.

          The best I can see on the 2016 ticket would be Hillary/Castro, and I'm not too confident about that combination being able to win as early as 2016.

          The Republicans still have Ryan to run again.  And Christie could flip-flop once his state is back in order from Democratic assistance. And maybe they'll resurrect Romney somehow. There's really no predicting right now what the Republicans will do and they have so many choices to groom and use.
