  •  Our primaries will do in a pinch. (0+ / 0-)

    The war here between "bots" and "purists" offers plenty of drama, and we represent the left two-thirds of the Democratic party.  We might even be able to treat the nation to a three-way in 2016:  

    1.  Hillary Clinton, who would most clearly "deserve" the title based on experience as Senator and SecState, and has any number of chips to cash in with Barack Obama.  She also has four home states (NY, AR, IL, PA):  NY, AR and IL for the primaries and PA for the general.  

    2.  Cory Booker, SuperMayor!  It would not take much to convince New Jersey's Democratic establishment to attempt to kick Mayor Booker upstairs.  He's also a friend to Wall Street but not the teachers' unions, so DLC-type money would probably go his way.  His habit of rescuing people from their burning houses won't hurt.

    3.  Elizabeth Warren, who is the progressives' heroine and death to malpractice on Wall Street.  She'll have precisely the experience Obama had in the Senate, coupled with political chops from a battle with Scott Brown.

    "Politics should be the part-time profession of every citizen who would protect the rights and privileges of free people and who would preserve what is good and fruitful in our national heritage." -- Lucille Ball
