The GOP needs to reform itself, clearly. But the Democrats cant act like this is some evidence that they are so beloved.
I agree. Huff post is calling this a mandate for Obama. I don't think so. Obama and the Dems should have blown Romney and the Repubs away after the ridiculous crap the Right pulled over the last 4 years but they didn't. That should show the Dems that they have to do a better job next time around.

The Right have alot of soul searching to do but the Dems have alot of issues to fix themselves.

Yeah, I don't see this as a "mandate" in the least.

I couldnt go to sleep, even after they called OH for Obama. (Stupid Karl Rove!)

I had flashbacks to going to sleep in 2000 thinking Gore won the election and then waking up to Dubya's ugly mug and hanging chads. It's like a horror film, I had to make sure Romney was really dead which he really wasnt until they called CO, OR, NM, and WI for Obama.

That's their reaction/fear based on his re-election. Sweet knowledge of how it works.

I would call it more of an overreaction based on his re-election.

Unless Obama makes her fall on the sword for Benghazi.

She could be as to the Obama administration as Colin Powell was to the Bush administration...a sacrificial lamb put out to pasture.

She's already said that she was done after this election.

She's getting ready for 2016.

I believe she has already said that she would be stepping down the second term. I will assume we will see John Kerry put in her place.

And I think she will take a year off, write a book (boy will it be a doosey I'm sure....) and then in late 2013, early 2014 we will see her emerge again....if Obamacare is working she will taut that as a good thing, and similar to what she proposed during her husbands time as President, if it isn't working she will show how her ideas were different and could work....and she will begin campaigning. That is my hope anyway....we will see how that goes.

I would not be surprised if it was Susan Rice.

Hmmmmm......I don't think they can pull her in after the Benghazi fiasco...she has too many tire marks on her after being thrown under the bus.

John Kerry would not be a bad option as Secretary of State. He already has foreign policy experience as Head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He'd probably be a good one.

That doesn't bother me since I am long with my stock anyways. History shows that the S&P 500 gains about 10% a year over the long haul. Now, if you think that Wall Street is trying to punish someone for voting for Obama, then think again. I think they would only be hurting themselves in the end.
