A better litmus test, I can’t imagine

Dear potential Democratic candidates for president in 2016,

Before you start attending a steak fry, working the Sunday shows, calling fundraisers, hiring consultants, and forming leadership PACs and all that, let me make a suggestion: See that lady in the picture up there? That lady ought to be Speaker of the House. She busts her ass for this party. If you want to lead this party, I suggest you do some serious heavy lifting to make said lady Speaker of the House.

That should be the test for any potential nominee. How hard will you work to retake the House?

Barack Obama did his duty from 2005 to 2006. He traveled far and wide into every corner of the country from Congressional races to Senate races. All in the service of making a strong House majority, he did his duty. Now the President will have to turn his attentions abroad in the closing years of his term, with the overall goal of passing on to his successor a country that is prosperous and peaceful. That means the onus on winning back the majority is on you…the pretenders.

Who is going to get out there for the next two years and work the hardest for Democrats?

Better be you.

    Seriously, I think that the President himself should make 2014 his last campaign. Keep the crew together and have them run against this Congress.

    That would be righteous.

    Keeping the Senate will be difficult for the Dems in 2014 (20 Dems & 13 Reps)

    Obama needs to work on both houses.
