    but there's precedent for a losing vice-presidential candidate eventually becoming president, in only 12 years.

    I will vote for Obama, and every Democrat I can vote for, in 2012.

      FDR is actually the only example EVER, of ANY party, since 1800 (when the rules were changed to the present format).

      It took him not only 12 years but a major sea change in public opinion - and it looks like any "sea change" is going against the Slash and Enslave party.

      If it's
      Not your body,
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      And it's
      None of your damn business!

        but he's a young enough to remake himself; he's photogenic; and he has a plan backed by billionaires.

        I will vote for Obama, and every Democrat I can vote for, in 2012.
