Heinrich has classic appeal. He's safe. He won't make waves. Can you see Heinrich do anything stupid.
All the same could be said for Kaine (and Warner). Both are both 'safe' and arguably safer than Henrich as both have also been governors so have exec experience.

He has Western appeal, and that may be crucial in November 2016.

NM is already safe for Dems and I don't see how he would have any reach to boost CO or NV, I doubt most have even heard of him. If you want someone to help in CO then pick someone from CO. And again Kaine (and Warner) would clearly have more effect on a battleground (VA).

So again Kaine is the much more strategic bet, and that doesn't even count the temporary loss of a Senate seat (and risk of losing it for longer)

I'm a storm spotter for the county, but never saw one. It's my dream to. Though, in an open field, no damage no deaths.

I saw a wall cloud which comes before a funnel cloud, but that's the closest I've seen.

I took this about 5 miles north of Seneca on September 1, 2013. I was home from college and we were eating dinner and a warning came across my family's phones and I was up in a flash north of town. Saw this beaut. Closest I've ever seen to a tornado. The base on the right never ended up lowering.

*Sorry for the bad quality, I still have a flip phone. Don't judge.

It's 8:30 p.m. Arkansas has closed and is too close to call. However, at this time we can call both New Hampshire and Pennsylvania for Hillary Clinton.

It's 8:44 p.m. and we have a major announcement to make. Hillary Clinton has won the crucial swing state of Ohio for the Democratic ticket. This is an extremely positive development for the Democratic ticket. No candidate has won the Presidency without Ohio since 1960.

Former Secretary of State (D-NY) / Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA): 134 Electoral Votes
Former Governor Jeb Bush (R-FL) / Governor Brian Sandoval (R-NV): 66 Electoral Votes

1. Wisconsin
2. Michigan
3. Iowa
4. Indiana
5. Missouri
6. Kentucky

For the record, I don't consider Illinois and Michigan as bordering each other, but in college I took a geography of Illinois class and it was steadfast in believing that the two bordered.

How do they eff that up?

Hmm yeah no idea. Thought I'd include it though. The UP looks so effing amazing I wanna go soon. Or Sleeping Bear Dunes. I've only been to Michigan once for a very very short period of time, but I loved it.

There is no plot line outside of the songs. That being said, it is perfect.

The ERA is much like the proposed Child Labor Amendment.  In theory, it would desirable, but in practice I fail to see where it is needed.  What exactly would passage of an ERA do that isn't already being done (or least is doable by Congress if it chooses to act)?  I can't think of anything.

Perhaps this can answer some of your questions.

Like the proposed Right to Vote Amendment, it would make explicit and enshrined into the Constitution protections that cannot be rolled back with the turning of the political tide, or made subject to the whims of politicians.  

And to answer the question of this thread, I am resigned to the fact that Republicans are likely to hold on to at least one house of Congress (as well as a majority of state legislatures, particularly in the South) for generations to come.  I am under no delusions -the vast majority of what I want to have accomplished (including the passage of the Equal Rights and Right to Vote amendments) will not be.

When was the last time the GOP didn't have a STAUNCHLY socially conservative wing?  This isn't new, and it won't ever go away...

They were never as dominant as they are now.

Except for that whole "Founded to fight the moral evil of slavery" thing..

A lot of the socially liberal attitudes out of the 19th century came from a religious view on things.

Religion was kind of a factor in both social liberalism and conservatism then.

You have a very frustrating view of faith in politics. "When religious people do good things, they're being liberal. When they do bad things, they're being conservative."

The great, social conservative evil that is the pro-life movement is condemned by liberals for "legislating their morality." Republicans have always done this, from our founding. The fight against slavery was the beginning of our fight to "legislate our morality" onto others. The ideological heritage is clear.

That's not really how I think at all. The prohibition movement, for example, was a Progressive position to hold

Progressivism is different from progressivism.
