    And you are making a ton of assumptions about 2016 that at this point are mere chimeras. We DON'T need the House to get momentum for 2016, and it's anyone's guess who the candidates will be (although almost certainly not Hillary) but if the GOP doesn't heal its rifts, it might be rough— for THEM.

    Jon Husted is a dick.

    •  you think no Hillary? (0+ / 0-)

      We need the House to get anything done at all besides not destroying SS and the EPA. Getting stuff done for a year would be good politics ahead of 2016. Nothing gets done and some of the vast majority of the voters who don't pay that much attention might be swayed by "hope and change" from Rubio/Ryan or some young gun new AnnRandians.

      Curious why you think no Hillary? Not well / too old? Are you just not a fan? I'm just asking on a horse race level as none of the centrists are all that exciting too me. (Obama's turning out about how I expected since he won the nomination in 2008, though I expected more bully pulpit.) I'd like to see Hillary just because she'd shatter the glass ceiling though Schumer will push Gillibrand if Hillary's not in.

      If you didn't like the news today, go out and make some of your own.

        Hillary looked pretty tired.

        In 4 more years she'll be 68.  A term as president tends to age you fast (usually the stress seems to add about 10 years in a 4 year term), I don't think she wants it bad enough to come out of a very comfortable retirement she's in now.

          however first female President has to be tempting to a career politician. And she'd get more of the same kick I'd get out of rubbing it in the noses of the Clinton haters from the 90s. (FWIW not a huge Clinton fan, way too corporate for me, but will always root against the other side)

    •  No Hillary? Please explain... (0+ / 0-)

      GOP is already trying to walk back its war on women, and The Dispatch in C-bus is testing the waters for Kasich to run in 2016. But Ohio's guv already neutered himself with SB5, and he knows that the state's hospitals would begin eating his lunch if he didn't expand Medicaid. He'll soon strangle on his school voucher plan. My GOP friends here in C-bus think Hillary is a foregone conclusion, and only gerrymandering keeps the House. Are they paranoid depressives?
