    It was going to be tough to beat Obama, so the scam artists waded in in 2012, giving dupes like Sheldon Adelson hope where none existed.

    But, in 2016, things will be very different. The "organizer" Republicans will be ascendant over the grifters - who will have quietly had "heart attacks" or retired "to spend more time with their families."

    Even worse, there won't be the OFA "machine" and the Obama "product" in place. And, if nothing else, Republicans are great at trashing "brand names" - not just their own brand, but also the "brand" of people would have made excellent presidents like Kerry, Gore, Dukakis, Mondale, Carter, McGovern . . .

      In 2016 things will be WAY different.  All of their electoral college changes should be in place by then.
