    handily. And I like that idea.

    Granholm lacks political gravitas. She had a hard run with the legislature she was dealt. Before I say something rude. Maybe she could follow Blanchard's legacy as Ambassador to Canada. Bridge and all.

    •  She is from Canada, after all. But I will second (2+ / 0-)

      your point about the bad legislative branch she dealt with....I don't think many people realize how many times she vetoed bad bills concerning women's health care.  And she did have a deficit to deal with when she entered office and had to balance the budget every year.  And not being able to raise revenue through taxes....I think she did what she had to.

      All that said, I like the sound of Peters in the Senate; I think he can pull off some progressive votes without too much consequence as we seem to elect Dems for Senate in MI.

      I am more worried about gov, sec of state and AG.
