. . .  it's TWELVE MORE YEARS -- and could be many, many more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2012:
-- Obama re-elected
-- Democrats gain 2-3 Senate seats, GOTP still has enough seats to filibuster everything (which they do)
-- Democrats take control of the House.

2016:
-- Hillary Clinton wins the White House in a historic landslide, never seen since the days when FDR nuked the Republican Party.
-- Democrats gain filibuster-proof Senate majority
-- Democrats pick up more House seats as the GOTP fades into the trash bin of history

2020:
-- A repeat of 2016

Think about this  -- between 2012 (Obama re-elected) and 2024 (Clinton's second term ends) four or five SCOTUS justices will retire, enabling Democratic presidents to appoint real justices to the Court.

And  beyond 2024 . . .

Just the prospect of this future makes me all giddy inside . . . time for another pitcher of Bloody Mary's!!!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
