      For every billionaire on the right there's one on the left. There will be plenty of big money from wealthy donors when/if Hillary runs in 2016.

      But what about 2014?

      Democrats just have to make billionaires on the left realize that even electing the best POTUS will have little effect on pushing a liberal agenda if both houses of Congress are run by Republicans. For example, compare 2008-2010 -- to -- 2010-2014. The difference between the two was the Democrats setting the agenda in both Houses.

      Left-leaning billionaires staying on the sidelines in 2014 will ensure a neutered Democratic POTUS -- not only Obama for the remainder of his term.

      But also his successor.

      •  Is there? (0+ / 0-)

        Or is there just a billionaire who is slightly more to the left?

        super depressing, and I really don't want to agree with it.

        And in fact, I don't agree with it. This has got to change or we get more of the same.

        Democracy - 1 person 1 vote. Free Markets - More dollars more power.
