    recognized he was unelectable for a second term and just didn't run.  Somehow, I don't think that will happen.  I hate to think what a primary would do, though.

      It is a waste of time and money. We should re-direct all of the energy and the $ to electing more and better representatives. That is the key. We have to knock off a couple of blue dogs and find some better candidates.

        determined to give the rethugs everything they want - and then some.  He had a majority for his first two years.  Yes, he had to deal with some blue dogs.  But he IS a blue dog.  And with him giving away the store before the Dems have a chance, I don't see what good it will do us.  I really don't.  I'm nearly ready to give up.
