  •  Elizabeth Warren. (18+ / 0-)

    Review what her career has been about.

    She's not a law enforcement techie, but it's damn close. And she's one helluva lawyer.

    Get Warren into the Senate from Massachusetts in 2012. Then run her for President of the United States in 2016.

    At the very least get her the V.P. slot in 2016.

    What else ?

    •  Going from never holding elected office to WH (9+ / 0-)

      in 4 years is a tall order.  Granted, going from state senator to the WH in 4 years seemed to be a tall order in '04.  I seriously doubt, however, that Warren (whom I respect and admire) will be wowing the crowd w/ a Keynote Address at next year's Dem Convention.

      This party has spent 3 decades trying to win a game in which the rules are largely set by the opposition.   That hasn't changed in past 2.5 years--GOP is clearly setting agenda now.  There's an entire philosophy that badly needs to be dramatically overhauled, and I once assumed that "Change" meant at least a minor overhaul.

      I assumed, in hindsight, a lot in 2008.

      Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?

      •  Health care done Republican style would have (0+ / 0-)

        bankrupted the country.

        Google [ mcallen medicare new yorker ].

        Economic policy Obama-style is no where near to an optimal solution.

        You have to pick your fights. Set priorities. Obama also got scores of first-rate changes from what Bush/Cheney had been doing.

        I'm figuring he's gotten 98% of what he could have gotten. A+.

      determining who gets to sit in the big comfy chair in the oval office.
