If Joe’s gotta go, and Hillary’s a no-go, then Senator Diane Feinstein would be a formidable choice.
She’s pissed at Obama for the egregious, (I say treasonous) leaks over which she has oversight as a senior member of the Intelligence Committee. I believe she also sits on Foreign Relations. Even apart from her impressive credentials and her (liberal!) politics, however, she’s no intellectual slouch. She’s been a solid Democrat, solid Senator, and gracious leader. She would be an excellent choice (dammit).
It was also her house in Georgetown where the deal was done to make Hillary Secretary of State and not the VP in late 2008. It was her dining room, reportedly, where those discussions took place.
She was also a latecomer to ObamaCare and had to be dragged over the finish line. She negotiated more water for the Central Valley farmers who were drying up due to the stupid Delta Smelt.
All of this is indicative of a close relationship & a covenant of trust between Obama & the Senator. The kind of relationship where he might call her and say “If you lay off me about my treasonous leaks, I’ll put you on the ticket.”
I keep having these daydreams that a Romney election will lead us to another “go-go” 1990’s, only this time, obviously, the 2010’s…
I envision a time when people exhale, remember who they are, return to the traditions of merit and excellence that made us great, and spend & earn money again. Add in the REVOLUTION with fracking and money could be falling from the sky. It’s EXACTLY the kind of era that makes a boom time a smooth time and could herald the return of smooth jazz on terrestrial radio…
Gosh, I hope so. For ALL of it.

This Ann Romney / Hilary Rosen thing has spun waaaay out of control and somebody has to be the grown-up and stop it, and it’s got to be us.
We need to be viciously disciplined from this point forward and not let the Left distract from the issues and define the news cycle.
As juicy and tempting as these things are, we must not bite. We must give it a sentence then move right back to the FACTS about Obama’s ABYSMAL record.
“Anyone who has ever spent a day with their own children knows what hard work it is. It’s harder when there’s one less paycheck in the house, gas is $4 per gallon, your home equity has crashed, the dollars you have left in the bank are worth less, and there’s no economic hope in sight under this president. That’s what matters. That’s what conservatives care about…”
That is how this needs to be dealt with, with military regularity and rapidity.
Ohio’s Senator Sherrod Brown is a walking, talking bad cartoon of everything that is wrong with America’s politics today. He’s been there too long, he can’t tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and he wouldn’t know the constitution if someone shoved it up his… well… never mind. But HE’S GOTTA GO.
I just sent some money to Josh Mandel, a brave, capable young (You gotta see this kid! He looks like the class nerd – EXACTLY who you want in the Senate!) man who is taking him on in the CRITICAL state of Ohio. HELP EMPTY THE SWAMP. SEND HIM SOME MONEY AND LET’S THROW THE BUMS OUT!
