  •  Agreed (5+ / 0-)

    A third party campaigning on Obama's 2008 platform is bound to surface and attempt to jettison the partisan baggage.

    People's priorities haven't changed from that campaign. If anything they're hardened. Life is harder now. More brutal. High school grads, new voters, young families, they have fewer options now and for the next decade or more.

    It won't  be pretty. Very risky, But Obama road tested a formula and there will be copy cats.    

    Eliminate the Bush tax cuts Eliminate Afghan and Iraq wars Do these things first before considering any cuts

      one up. All that's missing is a candidate. Of course, that's all that was missing from them in 2008 and 2004 too.

      •  Nolabels would never capture energetic Dems (0+ / 0-)

        The bar is set higher than Obama and that's pretty darn high. No, it will be a no brainer type team or it won't happen. The last thing Americans want is to hand the gov't over to a veritable venture capital investment group.
