    turnout machine for 2014 and especially 2016? Does it carry on, get handed off, or does it go away?

      Not because Obama refuses to leave it to his successors but because each candidate has to build his own in order for it to work.

      I imagine that future candidates of both parties will look to this and try to emulate it.  Republicans would like to replicate it, but they'd have to hold their noses doing it.  Can't get too close to the unwashed masses, you see...

        he's got all the name recognition now and knows where his weaknesses are and to what extent he can hide or trample the truth.

        GAWWWD I hope I'm wrong.

      would be my guess.  Trimmed down, but ready to gear up again for 2014.

      I do worry about 2016, but there are so many people who grew up and learned their craft in the 2008 and 2012 campaigns--and saw what happens when you let down in 2010--that I think the next few cycles are going to be very exciting.
