    there has been no such thing as a non-partisan office.  Everything is measured through the lens of a party letter and to think otherwise seems romantic and naive.  

    Democrats may think of certain offices as non-partisan, but I can assure you that the Republicans and the Republican noise machine think of everything on the terms of partisan advantage.

    Look at the Susan Rice episode.  The tragic death of the Ambassador and his guards should have been seen as a national tragedy that Dr. Rice had nothing to do with, but it was then escalated by the Republicans to a major deal merely to gain a momentary partisan advantage.  Given the perceived "offense" committed by Dr. Rice by appearing on the Sunday pundit shows in no way justified the firestorm of Republican abuse heaped upon her as a potential SecState and can be explained in no other way than the hyperpartisanship of the Republican Party.

      but we needn't play that game ourselves, especially directed at our own President.

      Things work out best for those who make the best of the way things work out.
