15. Agreed

We need to not only win (keep) the Senate but also (somehow) make it politically toxic for the Republicans (or anybody else) to keep up with this radical obstructionism that makes it impossible for President Obama to appoint nominees to fill cabinet positions and federal courts (particularly when the only reason the Republicans are objecting to most of the nominees is simply because it's OBAMA who is doing the appointing), grinds normal Senate business to a halt, and prevents the Senate from being able to have an up-or-down majority vote on, well, anything.
