    That would be so unfair ...

    Oh, wait. So were the last two elections.

    With the obvious lack of any real "political" intelligence demonstrated by the public ('08, and '12 especially), I have absolutely no doubt that Biden could win.
    A lack of knowledge is repairable, but stupidity IS NOT - usually anyway.

    The Biden Team Actually Thinks?

    I fully expect Michelle to run or Barry to rid term limits altogether.

    A lot depends on whether the GOP can get its act together ... and so far it does not look like they will. They seem to be fragmenting and that is no way to win a national election.

    I don't know. The Republicans seem to find ways to lose. They could even lose to Joe Biden. He has a great smile.

    And of course, if all the polls stay open extra late in select major cities...

    Fer once I agree with Crabby!
    '12 was a perfect example (well, '08 also) of the GOP snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
    To be perfectly honest, both we so dumb it looked pre-planned.:sleeping_2:

    My two cents--

    1. Bill Clinton helped Obama in 2012 in exchange for support for Hillary in 2016.

    2. Obama backed off the deal after he won and said that he was for Biden.

    3. 80% of Democrats are for Hillary.

    4. Both Hillary and Biden would be as bad as the current President.

    5. The GOP is lying low until after 2014 with no-clear cut leader, but I am hoping for Ted Cruz or Rick Perry.

    6. We don't want to put up Jeb Bush against Hillary because people are tired of Bush-Clinton.

    12 was primarily because conservatives stayed home as they had no one to vote for. The other part was that the Dems had a much better ground game.

    The latter will not be an issue this next time around. The tea party gearing up again. And old bill knows nothing about what is wrong with the GOP. he just spouts DNC talking points. They are trying to create a narrative. They are not interested in truth of any kind.

    What this country needs is a republican Goldman Sachs/Monsanto president. We could have had one in Romney but those pesky Ron Paul and Tea Party folks ruined it for us.

    Not to worry though I'm sure Goldman Sachs and Monsanto will own both candidates next election so there's still hope republicans can pull it off.

    I don't believe that will happen. I have a friend who is or was one of his patients. He has retired and my friend says he is moving to Paris, France.

    <sarcasm>Did your friend read that on the internet? 'Cause we all know if it's on the internet, it must be true. I'll bet Dr. Carson's going to start a new career as a French model.</sarcasm>

    With the number of safe electoral votes the Democrats have {probably close to 225), unless something major happens, whoever they run in 2016 will win.

    No I did not read it on the Internet. I heard it from the mouth of a good friend who was operated on by Dr. Carlson.

    Let's put it this way. My friend and Dr. Carlson prayed together, sang hymns together when she had appointments with him. He told her that he was so tired that he had to retire. He said he is moving to Paris because as long as he stays in the States he knows that doctors and people will constantly beg him for their help. In the future he will return to the States only for cases where he will operate on children that no one else can or will operate on. This is the practice that made Dr. Carlson famous in his younger days.

    All I know is that is what he told my friend.

    Maybe under pressure from the conservatives he will change his mind. Time will tell.

    A 30-second google search revealed that not only has he retired, he's taken up as a columnist with a U.S. paper. Nothing about a move to Paris.

    BTW: My apologies. My intent was to show that although a friend said something, all public records at this point mention nothing about such a move; and in fact, point to something different. I, too, have friends who tell me things; but, skeptic about most things that I am, I check those things out, and correct my friends when all information and/or evidence points a different way.

    Don, no problem.

    He may have changed his mind.
    He may not have made the decision public.
    No way of knowing for sure.

    Being in Paris should not make much difference in being a columnist for a U.S. paper. With e-mail articles can be filed from anywhere.

    Using the Internet I indexed a number of books while in Prague this winter. The publisher would email the book as an attached file, PDF format. I would index the book and sent it as an attached file, Word format.

    The Internet gives us all freedoms unthought of previously.

    Blessings.
