The 2016 election is approaching and it is pretty clear that the Democrats will have quite a primary, especially with rumors of Hillary R. Clinton's potential presidential run. If a Democrat wins the white house in 2016, they should have a team that can accomplish great things.

It is time for fresh faces in Washington D.C. so we can actually create the change that the voters asked for in 2012. Support for the Democratic Party and their causes is growing and we have a real opportunity to change the culture of Washington D.C. in 2016 so that it works for we the people once again.

The people who will make the most change are those who will be advising the president on a daily basis: his or her cabinet secretaries.

Once a week, I will post a proposed cabinet position, you make your own suggestions, and we will take polls and vote to see who we agree should be on the 2016 Presidential cabinet. Have an alternative choice? Post it in the comment section or vote for the proposed secretaries in the poll. In the end, I will come up with the final Daily Kos approved Presidential Cabinet. I want this to be interactive and democratic, and have you, the Kos masses, create this proposed presidential cabinet. I will send the final version to the Democratic nominee for President so they know who we have in mind.

YOUR 2016 Presidential Cabinet

2016 is looming on all our minds, and it is pretty clear that the Democrats have a huge advantage going into 2016, especially with rumors of Hillary R. Clinton's potential presidential run.

Hey, Donald Trump here. Where’s your birth certificate? And don’t give me no certificate of live birth crap! If you were born in America, you have a birth certificate. Sure my birth certificate is from the Jamaica Hospital in Queens, at least it isn’t from Kenya! And hey, Hawaii wasn't even a state a few years before Obama was born there, why does that count?

Hey, Kloppenburg… You’re fired! And you never even had the job! This proves that the voters of Wisconsin love the Tea Party, let me tell you. They are making sure that their rights are protected, by electing a Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice who will side with the governor by stripping workers of their fundamental rights. See, the system works!

Afterthought

by TheNextDylan

I have known for years that the American dialogue was filled with vitriol and hatred. Rightwing wingnuts post hateful rhetoric, wishing politicians dead and wish harm to their political enemies. Right wing political pundits do not hold back, constantly promoting bogus claims death panels, Kenyan birth, terrorist sympathies, socialist health care, and of course second amendment remedies. Then, silence. A gunman fires into a crowd, killing six and critically wounding a sitting congresswoman. Silence. A nation in shock, grieving for the dead and seeking comfort in the fact that the congresswoman survived this brutal attack. But where will our nation go from here?

Welcome to the O'Reilly Factor.
Some people have told me that the moon causes the tides. Yet I have also heard people tell me that the moon is made of cheese. So who am I to believe, God or the French? The tides go up and down because there is no miscommunication, unlike the one between me and my third grade teacher.

Welcome to the O'Reilly Factor,
Today's W.R. Grace Hero of the Day is Senator Olympia J. Snowe, who voted against health insurance for 9/11 first responders. She earned special recognition because unlike other Republican objectors, she was a noted moderate. No longer! It takes balls to stand up to the Democrats who selfishly support 9/11 heroes and their families for political gain. My good friend Ann Coulter said the 9/11 widows were intolerable, and Olympia J. Snowe has finally woken up and realized that Ann was right all along. Olympia J. Snowe, welcome to the dark side. You are back on my Christmas list. Anyway, the dust that filled the lungs of first responders looked a lot like snow, so I am sure there is nothing to worry about.

Welcome to The Factor,
Now some of you might have heard that the Bush tax cuts are being extended for two years, and I think this is great news. President Obama has changed his campaign slogan to "Yes We Can" to "Yes We Can... But We Won't."  Now I can afford that fifth mansion in the Aspens that I have always been dreaming about, and so can the middle and lower class folks, of course. After all, the money hasn't trickled down yet, but trust me, I will need to pay someone to shovel that snow from my driveway. See, the economy is improving already.

Welcome to the Factor. Thank you for joining us.

I knew it all along. I knew that the Democrats were unicorns living in a magical fantasyland. Let's just hope that this announcement doesn't get Carl Paladino horny, no pun intended. Now I would show you his adult films, but that would be unprofessional for a Fox News journalist to... okay, I'm BSing you, here it is, the orginal footage. This will be a ratings boom. Can we get more exploited women in bikinis, please? Thank you.

For my internet readers, I will post the video on my blog later this evening.

Welcome to the O’Reilly Factor,

It was great to see that ten billion people attended Glenn Beck’s Restoring Fear Rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Only two hundred thousand people attended Martin Luther King Jr.’s "I Have A Dream" speech, so Dr. King has lost. Sorry, but look at the scoreboard.  I was shocked that he got Martin Luther King’s niece to speak at the rally. Don’t get Glenn wrong, this rally was about restoring fear, not about Martin Luther King Jr. in any way. I mean. Dr. King fought to give negroes the right to vote and to end racial segregation, and Glenn Beck is rallying so that people pay attention to his apocalyptic rants. It is completely different. Dr. Laura, by the way, has the right to say whatever she wants: I say she should perform at the Apollo, or at the Laugh Factory in West Hollywood. It would be a teaching moment.
