Lurching towards 2016

Seems to me that inequality, lack of opportunity, and the sale of democracy to the highest bidder are likely to be the big issues domestically. Our candidate-who-shall-not-be-named will do well to simply heed the Zeitgeist embodied by our senior Senator. ISIS and the Middle East will continue to dominate the news in 2016, which will be a problem for Dems: Perversely, it's politically "neater" to talk about war and boots-on-the-ground than about how to extract ourselves from that hornet's nest. Will "tough talk" on ISIS carry the GOP to victory in 2016? - promoted by charley-on-the-mta
