    is infinitely more important than replacing Levin with someone younger. No reason to redirect top Democratic talent away from where it should be.

    "Every daring attempt to make a great change in existing conditions, every lofty vision of new possibilities for the human race, has been labeled Utopian."

    •  I also agree with that. (0+ / 0-)

      After all, politics is the art of the possible.  But the Michigan Democratic Party's bench is mighty thin.  Also, 3 of our 7 Congressional MI-D officeholders are over 80, in addition to Carl Levin who is 78 1/2.

      We need to find more of that "top Democratic talent," and soon.

    •  Well, while I am absolutely sure this won't happen (1+ / 0-)
