    tell me that because we have such hidebound "rules" in our heads about who we will and won't vote for, we have to settle for what we can get.
    Said that most people have some kind of shady shit in their backgrounds that disqualifies them from running for public office.
    Oh really?  I'm thinking maybe the Dems are ready to vote in some strong Dems regardless of their "shady pasts".
    There are some superb candidates right here on this site, and if any of you guys decided to run, I don't think any Democrat would give a shit what you mighta been up to as a teenager or whatever.  
    THAT might wake up our way-too-comfy-and-complicit congress critters!
