    vacancy waiting in the wings and nothing is more "major" than that.  We win elections or else - or else the next justice of the Supreme Court is selected by a Republican president and if there's anything worse than Citizens United the resulting solidified right wing court is guaranteed to give it to you.  And more.

      So we're voting for the Supreme Court, then.

      Everything else means nothing, apparently.

      It doesn't matter what the party does on anything else, just as long as a Supreme Court vacancy is filled by someone who isn't another Scalia, Thomas, Alito, Roberts, or, more often than not, Kennedy.

      Why bother doing anything that might actually work towards keeping the distance between the two parties as wide as possible?

      Just let them slowly, but surely, become harder and harder to distinguish from each other on everything except social issues.

      Toe the line it is, then, for you, I guess.

      Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us. ~ J. Garcia
