  •  How about Warren for her VP? (4+ / 0-)

    Some would have a fainting spell, but heaven knows, we've had enough all-male teams.

      I mean I think there are some individuals, like her and Franken that could do more good not in office.

      When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.

      •  To the contrary, I think Franken has done a lot of (4+ / 0-)

        good.  And until he was a Senator, he was "just" a comedian.

        Warren, well, one could argue she has a better public image now... but Senator could only raise that.  

        Plus, we need more women in the Senate.  And some black people, fcol.

        •  60 Senate votes. Personality matters. (5+ / 0-)

          The difference between 60 Senate votes and 59 is having global warming legislation; a public healthcare option; a stimulus bill in a recession; etc.

          People like Franken and Warren and Obama are vital to have as major candidates because they can speak the truth persuasively, in a way that moves ordinary people. If Al Gore or John Kerry had Obama's personality, they'd have beaten Dubya...by enough to overcome GOP skullduggery and actually take power.

          I have said a zillion times that if John Kerry had hired Al Franken and Molly Ivins (RIP) as his speechwriters, he'd be President.

          Find people with that magic combination of policies and personality, and push them to the highest-profile races possible.
