    The overall electorate is much more liberal, but they just can't get off their asses and vote during the mid-terms, as was laid bare in this recent election. This past election had the lowest turnout in over 60 years. It was no embrace of Republican ideology; it was just that no one felt that they had anything to vote for and didn't show up.

    For whatever reason, Democrats get more motivated during Presidential election years and I'm sure that won't be any different in 2016. The map is extremely favorable to Democrats in 2016 and many left leaning states are taking a page from the Republican playbook and adding ballot measures meant to get the base out to vote. Republicans have mastered that art and Democrats are finally looking like they are catching up to them. Add all that up, and I'm rather optimistic about 2016.

    I'm going to "pray" they do but I have my doubts after 8 years of misinformation about Obama he has become the most disliked president in recent memory. What can you say about a society where 52% of the population believe Gun rights are more important than gun control! I won't even bring up belief in god and the Bible;(

    Just as Bush was the most disliked President before him. The only problem is that the former tanked the economy and sent it spiraling into the worst recession in nearly a century and the latter dug us out of that mess and has our economy moving full speed ahead. I have a strong feeling history will look upon his Administration very favorably. I always think of things in the long view and not what current poll ratings are saying. Polls are still conducted almost entirely by household land lines, which means pollsters are pretty much writing off half the country that doesn't own one.

    jared:

    You make an interesting point about polls and land lines.

    According to The Atlantic, the percentage of households that has a land line but no wireless has dropped to a mere 9.4%, In contrast, the percentage that has wireless only (which now includes me and my wife) has risen to 35.8 %. Overall, more than half the population (51.6%) either don't use a land line at all or used it very little. Roughly 90% of the American population has at least one mobile phone, which USED to be true of landlines:

    Elizabeth Warren is still a long shot for President in 2016, but the more that I read about her, the more that I like her. David Brooks' column in this morning's New York Times is an interesting read:

    that guy in Arizona Overall, more than half the population (51.6%) either don't use a land line at all or used it very little.

    I am a member of the minority, still using a landlne as my primary phone. And yes, all polling and other annoying calls come in via that line. My smartphone allows me to set individual numbers on the reject list, but I cannot figure out how to do that (Verizon) for the landline. I would venture to guess that those responding to the polls are conservatives, many seniors probably, people who use their landlines as primary. Telephone polling is therefore skewed. If the companies providing our phone service allowed individual number blocking on landlines, I bet the polling numbers would be very different. How is it that Verizon can allow me to block a number from my cell and not my landline? In this day of hi-tech, that seems rather low-tech.

    I find it amazingly smart of Warren to express to the news media, "I am not running for President". She says this over and over, but still the press pushes her to slip up and express her real intentions to run for President. Well, I believe she has done that. She has stated she will not run in 2016. With that statement, you be assured she will be indicating a run in "FUTURE" elections.............2020, 2024 or beyond. She's still young and apparently in good health, so expect Warren to be a candidate in future elections, just not 2016.

    It is understood Warren knows where her real challenges are at this time in her life and that is a corrupt Congress. Her battles will be many as she vocalizes a distaste for what goes on in Congress. Elizabeth Warren will be a champion for human rights, civil liberties, economic improvements and anti-NRA. The NRA doesn't want her in this position, because they realize she can be dangerous to their interests. I'm calling Elizabeth Warren, "Super Woman". Anybody got a cape for her?

    I agree with this 100%. She went to Washington for a purpose and I don't think she wants to move on until she has changed whatever is in her power to change. All the more power to her. She may present a fresh face down the road when it's needed even more.

    Elizabeth Warren was born on June 22, 1949, which makes her 65 now...and 67 in 2016...and 75 in 2024.

    She needs to run now. Assuming Hillary is elected and reelected, Warren in 2024 will be tagged as "too old".

    I also don't see her as a VP for Hillary. They are not that close ideologically nor in temperament (passion). Bidan was a good soldier for Obama. I don't see the same role for Warren as Hillary's No. 2.

    I hate to rain on the parade but it's just not going to happen. We just elected a 50% black president (twice). Do you honestly believe that will be followed by election of a woman ? I would love to see that. If a woman can be elected I believe it will be HRC because Bill is an ex-president who can speak in full sentences. Mr. Carter is an intelligent man but don't expect him to speak at the democratic convention. Bill will be the difference. Can you believe we may have another Clinton / Bush ticket.
    I agree Warren would be a disaster as VP because the only thing harder than electing a woman would be electing two women. Sadly this populace isn't progressively thinking. However, a cabinet position would be a nice thing.

    Yes Tony; personally I think neither one will get elected; Clinton may run but is way to arrogant and money hungry; do not forget the mid term results the GOP will do everything to railroad her as well as Warren.

    Hey, --- since WHEN is being ARROGANT and "Money Hungry" --- a really BAD THING? ---- Most MALE Politicians have been that way, for Centuries : )

    But in the case of the Clintons, they were left nearly bankrupt, after the Witch Hunter (Ken Starr) got done with them. The Republicans "recruited" various sluts to testify against Bill Clinton, including his own "intern" --- Monica Lewinsky. (She mysteriously got closely involved with Daddy Bush's intern, Linda Tripp, who suggested getting evidence & trying to destroy Bill Clinton with sexual inuendo). Just imagine Daddy Bush dreaming up this scenario? WOW!! He could get Bill Clinton in trouble, maybe cause a divorce, get him impeached, & then help any Repub get into office - without even half-trying. (A GOP Dream come true).

    The SLEAZE Factor runs very deep in the Republican Party. The next thing the Bush affiliates dreamed up, was a so-called "Christian" girl, who tried very hard to get Bill Clinton involved with her. She would sneak up to his hotel room, & try to bribe someone to let her in. Her name was Paula Jones. But it turns out that this so-called "Christian" girl, was a part-time slut, & spent her evenings sitting half-naked in bars, trying to entice any man around to test her secret recipes. It was very profitable, her boyfriend tells us. Also, in one issue of PlayBoy (?) she appeared in ten or twelve naked photos. (I guess this is because she took a vow of "poverty" & couldn't afford any clothing). POOR THING. (But even the most "devout" Repub women, can be extremely resourceful, in earning extra Cash).

    Schmidt:


    I finally set aside 9 minutes and 43 seconds to watch Warren's speech, and was VERY impressed. . Regardless of whether she stays in the Senate (most likely) or gets elected President (a long shot) she's going to be holding a lot of people's "feet to the fire'.
