  •  I understand how Liz Warren was elected in my new (5+ / 0-)

    adoptive commonwealth (God save it, as Charlie Pierce  invariably prays) and Reed in R.I. But how in hell did Sherrod Brown, as truly progressive as he appears to be,  get elected and then RE-elected in Ohio?  If Hilary and Uncle Joe decide to pass on 2016, let me be the first to suggest a movement to draft Mr. Brown for the nomination.  The man must certainly know how to campaign.

      a record of championing the little guy. And his adversaries were dickish beyond comprehension. He's one tough SOB, too.

      I also like Richardson (NM?), but he seems to be content not to vie for the Oval Office. He seems to not want it at all.

      I believe in democracy, civil liberties, and the rule of law. That makes me a liberal, and I’m proud of it. - Paul Krugman

        with an unfaked concern for real people and an ability to talk to them and listen to them. He works hard to stay in touch with his constituents and to fight for regular working people.

        Also, he was running against Josh "The Empty Suit" Mandel, a despicable, unprincipled, arrogant candidate who lied his way through the campaign to a point where even our state's most conservative papers called him out. This little slimebag, whose unbridled ambition is completely untethered to any qualifications, now appears to be positioning himself to the far right of the state GOP. The other day he publicly urged the legislature to reject out governor's decision to accept the Medicaid expansion (one of the few sensible things Taxin' John Kasich has done), keeping himself in the headlines for what we don't know. Primary Kasich? Primary Portman? No choice Democrat targets are coming up for years, and The Empty Suit is a young man in a hurry to the White House.

        Jon Husted is a dick.

        •  Oh yeah -- now I remember: guy makes Santorum (0+ / 0-)

          look like a charm school valedictorian.  Well, who ever  gets to the White House without being fortunate in their enemies? Certainly not the current incumbent.
