I think that it's a bit early yet for predictions like this

Many people are not paying much attention yet. Primaries haven't even started, either. If Hillary wins the nomination, let's see what happens when people are actually forced to consider whoever the Republicans put up as their nominee. My guess is that most people will be a LOT more enthusiastic (or scared s***less of the Republican candidate) about voting for Hillary.

In the end it will just get vetoed by PBO

nothing will actually be accomplished and more time will be wasted. Hope the *satisfaction* that Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan feel if they pull this off (which is also still in question) is worth the waste of time and taxpayer money (which they obviously do NOT really care about).

*This should, however, show how necessary it will be to make sure that we at least hold on to the WH in 2016, esp. if the Senate stays Republican.

The same way we are all able to budget for catastrophic medical emergency visits/natural disaster

(i.e. we can't/don't)

In response to the original post, the idea of a Constitutional Convention lead by right-wing Tea Party legislators scares the s*** out of me and I hope that it NEVER happens- not for a constitutional "balanced budget" amendment or anything else their fevered imaginations might think of!

What possible problem

Could anybody have with straight-ticket voting? I just don't get it?

The same can be said

of some of the pro-Bernie/anti-Hillary posts here too. We all *should* be able to respect each other's choices without flinging mud at each other/being disrespectful.

I've seen that before

Pretty much sums it up. I'm glad that Republicans are finally being honest that BENGHAZI! was hyper-inflated to defeat Clinton in 2016 (though I'm sure that they were hopeful that maybe they might have been able to defeat Obama in 2012 with it as well. I still remember that creepy look on Romney's face right after it all happened).

Me too

Beyond that, I just don't get it. More people than not identify as Christian (of one denomination or another) in this country, most politicians identify as "Christian" and Christians seem to enjoy greater deference and protections in terms of their religious beliefs/sensibilities than any other religion in this country. If the Christians complaining about persecution really truly understood what Christians are experiencing in some countries like North Korea, I think that they might change their tune. What I think that some of them really can't seem to handle and hate is being forced to live in a pluralistic society where not everybody is like them and won't pander to their every whim or conform to their beliefs/lifestyle.

It seems like if some people couldn't find SOMETHING to be outraged about

their heads would explode

"Dubya kept us safe" only if you ignore

All of the things you mentioned. What I never got was how Republicans were so particularly eager to exploit 9/11 as though it were some "achievement" and profit off of it politically yet totally gloss over the fact that 3000 people died as a result of, at the very least, Bush's lack of concern over the impending attack. And the same people didn't care that, despite the absence of WMD in Iraq, 4000 soldiers died needlessly there as well. If all that wasn't enough, a major US city drowned and his (mis-)Administration's incompetence doomed even more people. He kept us safe?

If and when she gets elected

She, like Obama, will be disparaged for everything bad that happens or every good thing that fails to happen for Dems
