    ...are nonstarters for many here. I also think that same record could make him competitive in places where we need our nominees to be more competitive.

    I hope he runs so we can see if he can run a great national campaign. I think people are engaging in wishful thinking if they believe Hillary Clinton is just going to be given a coronation. I'm sure it is not lost on Governor Schweitzer that it has already been proven that she can be beat and has many avenues for an opponent to attack.

    The next nominee must be able to at least hold, if not expand, the Obama map. Assuming Hillary or anyone else can just easily be that person is a big mistake. It has to be earn and I hope he is willing to go for it.

    The politicians may be bought, and the system corrupt, but it is our duty to fix these things.

      which is why I'm ok with second prize. The nomination is Hillary's to lose, if she doesn't repeat the mistakes of 2008 or signal that she'll put Evan Bayh on the ticket.

      At the very least, I want Schweitzer to run just so I can watch him shake up the debates. I think people are gonna be knocked on their asses once they actually hear him on the issues.
