    We all understand that freedom isn't free. What Romney and Ryan don't understand is that neither is opportunity. We have to invest in it.

      Brown has shown twice now that he can win Ohio by more than a quarter-million votes. As you know, no Republican has ever won the Presidency without winning Ohio.

      I don't take Biden seriously as a candidate in 2016. Do you? To the extent he is, I would think those voters would be more likely to support Clinton than either Warren or Brown. I think he'll run, and I think he'll get twice as much support as he got in 2008. About ten percent or so.

      I love Elizabeth Warren, but she has no foreign policy experience and this was her first election. I think she'd be an excellent VP candidate, but somehow I doubt that she's going to spend a year and a half in the Senate and then start running for President.

      If Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton both run, isn't that likely to divide the votes of people who would like to see a woman as President? One thing for sure, if the race started out as Brown, Warren, and Clinton, it would quickly narrow to Clinton and one other. And we saw how that played out in 2008.

      And I believe the South still gets delegates to the Democratic National Convention. Would they go for Clinton or Warren? They might go for Schweitzer, but where can Schweitzer find the financial backing to run a national campaign? I think it's more likely he'll primary Max Baucus in 2014.
