  •  The problem isn't getting them elected (5+ / 0-)

    The problem is who they sold their soul to in order to get elected and what those people expect in return.  

    And even the ones who lose talk about jobs.  Romney must have said jobs 10 zillion times.  Job creators.  They know how to destroy perfectly good words.


    •  I agree. (2+ / 0-)

      That is a structural issue .. a political issue ... not an election driver.

      Personally the one thing I would have liked the President to spend rather more time on, is Campaign Finance Reform.

      The trouble is that all sides are so heavily invested in the current system, that it will take a veto-proof majority to fix it ... and they have to want to.

      It is the single problem that so hampers good work on many other issues.

      I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
      but I fear we will remain Democrats.
