1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Any other Democrats anxious about Hillary? on: November 19, 2014, 05:21:51 am
Except for the interruptions of the midterms, we should be enthusiastic but we shouldn't expect to be given the W.H. back.  It is a thing of oligarchy and representative Democracy. If the public thinks that we are expected to keep the W.H., then they are smart enough to vote in the G O P. But, since we have put the Obama coalition together and we have a favorable congressional map, we are in good position to do what Tony Blair did, put together a 3 term Labor Party movement.

Memorable quote, although wont have an effect on this runoff election, would be Boehner calling the prez of US stupid. It can be used as a fundraising mechanism in future 2015 gubernatorial elections. Bold move by Boehner, which emboldened Elizabeth Warren wing of Dem party.

Jon Tester (MT)
Heidi Heitkamp (ND)
Claire McCaskill (MO)
Joe Donnelly (IN)
Joe Manchin (WV)

All of these guys are gonna be targeted. Especially Tester, Heitcamp. McCaskill will be just delicious.
Toomey
Johnson
Kirk
Ayotte
Or Murkowski if Begich and Miller runs will be our targets in 2016

WVA open and Tester are clearly the most vulnerable ones, but once we regain majority again, it will be hard to take back since by then demographics by 2020 will favor us.

Seemingly, how this will be a one termer, Rauner is, GOP gov can work with Dem majority on resending the tax increase and real estate tax reform and try to work out a better pension deal. But aside that, there isn't much room to compromise. Since a lot of real estate negotiating goes through the Cook County Commission board anyhow.

Victory for Environment, end of reliance of fossil fuels, anyhow, should there be a G O P prez Jeb, more likely than the other G O P candidates, there is no 60 vote thresehold to withstand a filibuster, and it wont pass a reconciliation test. So, it will become A N W R

IA and CO, not ARK or LA was the key to the majority and having not acted on immigration reform through the Congress, not executively, we would have say a different result.

Had this been a competitive race in deciding control of senate along with GA and Orman. base voters, such as blacks would be more interested. But it is not and prez approval is a drag on Landrieu.
8  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who is Next in Line? on: November 16, 2014, 09:46:58 am
Jeb, Rand Paul or Huckabee. But having maxed out gains in 2014, in the House and Senate, no nominee will have an easy time against standard barrier Hillary Clinton.

Clinton will have the young, the women and the Hispanics and can win with or without Ohio, but Kasich has flipped flopped on Obamacare many times like Romney and it will be replayed back in a video.

Supporting Medicaid expansion but repeal the law, which wont happen.

I don't remember much about her, but she campaigned on behalf of Teddy Kennedy over Jimmy Carter and calming city after snow storm debacle and inhibitor of Daley for 6 yrs, in place of Harold Washington;

Giannoulous came within 2 points of Kirk in 2010 despite being corrupt as hell I'd say she has a very strong chance of beating him.

3 women in the state of Illinois has won statewide office Madigan, Simon and Duckworth, I think she is the risk worth taking.

Nobody thought Schneider or Frenchis would come close in respective races, lets get this race started.
12  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: IL-Sen. 2016 Grapevine on: November 14, 2014, 05:22:03 pm
PA-SEN, WI-SEN, IL-SEN will be key in taking control as well as either NH-SEN and or FL-SEN.
All we need is candidates aside from PA and we will be in good shape should Clinton be the standard barrier.
13  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Cohn: GOP House majority may now be unshakable for a generation on: November 12, 2014, 04:46:30 pm
A decade majority through 2020 is in the cards and a Dem senate, should we keep WH. 16/20 yrs Dem have alternated control of House of,Rep v Prez 10/10 yrs each for Senate, Dems are dominate in WH and senate, and G O P House.
14  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Cohn: GOP House majority may now be unshakable for a generation on: November 12, 2014, 10:47:30 am
Lets not forget Dems had a 258 seat majority after 2008 & ushered in an era of good feeling.

Clinton isnt Obama as far as South goes she is stronger than he is at the natl security level. Once we win those open Gov seats in 2018, & take back Senate, we can work on gerrymand for 2020 census.
15  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: What was the biggest surprise in your state? on: November 11, 2014, 05:50:37 pm
How much Dems stuck with Quinn running despite his low approvals, ended up with a Gov Rauner instead of any other Dem, like Vallas.
16  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Did a Flawed Computer Model Sabotage the Democrats? on: November 11, 2014, 05:45:41 pm
Obama used venues, where large people gathered to create an atmosphere, or movement to galvanize voters to vote in both election bids, to get especially people that normally wouldnt vote, voted.

The failure, was getting new voters registered to participate in this election through Obama means to come out, especially with Dems not trying to run on his record.
17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: Republican Wave? on: November 09, 2014, 04:18:52 pm
This was the last favorable map for G O P triumph.

We should net about 15 house seats and 4 senate seats should CO, NV, NH, PA follow the 272 firewall, for Hilary.
18  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: 2016 Senate Races Ratings. on: November 09, 2014, 04:14:11 pm
I hope we net NH with Kuster or Hassen, Kind from WI, Bob Grahams daughter, or statewide officeholder FL and Tammy Duckworth from IL giving us 4 net.
19  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: PA-2016: Sestak prepares for battle on: November 09, 2014, 04:09:09 pm
Sestak is a rear Admiral and has a natl security background, despite his liberal stances, but we have a better shot in IL and WI and FL and NH, this would be an added race to the ones we already have, not the first one we pick up.

21  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Charlie Crist on: November 09, 2014, 11:39:55 am
Word on the street is that if Marco Rubio runs for President, Florida law says he can't run for Senate as well, and Charlie Crist wants to get into the race.

omg please no no no...

Tammy Duckworth and BoB Grahams daughter will be trustworthy opponents for G O P.

IL and Ma would be blue if Vallas , not Quinn been the nominee, preview of 2018 gov rematch.
24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: Republican Wave? on: November 09, 2014, 11:06:40 am
The next time they have a big wave, the Democrats need to be ready to do in CO/NM/NV/VA/NH what the Republicans have now done in WV/KY/TN/AR/LA: sweep the legislatures, win by double digits statewide and take them off the table for good.  They can't let Republicans becotme entrenched in 20-25 states when they only have 5-10 of their own (CA still only gets 2 senators).

Yes, it was a wave, and the G O P won on its own turf, not a realignment election, and it had more to do with Christie testing the political waters. But, we are already living under sequester cuts and G O P budgets and 90%.of Congress will look same.

As for 2016, G O P will end their unity

 and turn to the primaries. We must find a way next to translate our prez victory, should Clinton win to midterm gains, since the G O P govs will be term limited.

THEY'RE CALLED ARTICLES AND CONJUNCTIONS. USE THEM

We blew the 2014 election with Obama, but 2016 wont have Obama to kick around anymore.
25  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: PA-2016: Sestak prepares for battle on: November 09, 2014, 11:02:58 am
Sestak will put up a fight and we have 18 states plus CO, NV, IA, Pa and NH.  I think Clinton will easily carry Pa by 9 pts or more giving Sestak machine needed to win.
