Need to get 2014 settled first eh?
Biden is already 70 and Hillary will be 68 in 2016__both are too old to be a modern era POTUS as the job requires far more energy due to modern communications.
Was it a stroke?
Or are you lying again?
Hillary will be 69 in 2016, not 68.

2014 will do little to change the political landscape, unless Republicans gain control of the Senate.

Of course turnout wins, every election.
Perhaps if Romney picked a better VP, his backers would have turned out in larger numbers.
Turnout was low because the Bible-thumpers are a-holes.

I sometimes say that too. "Tow" makes more sense to me than "toe" when it comes to towing something like a line - not toeing.
But guess you can put your toe against a line as well as tow it.
For instance, you tow a line of bull but also put your toe against it to avoid crossing it.
To say that you and Subversive Barry or fools of equal demerit would not be a stretch by any imagination. "A lot of people who don't know the origin of the phrase picture someone pulling a rope, cord, or some other "line"--"tow the line"--as a way of working for whomever the "line" belongs to. Thus, if the administration has a "line"--i.e., a "party line"--then those who side with the administration help to pull it ("tow" it) along.

Wrong.

The phrase "toe the line" is equivalent to "toe the mark," both of which mean to conform to a rule or a standard. The Oxford Dictionary of Word Histories (Oxford: Oxford Univ. Press, 2002; ed. by Glynnis Chantrell) says, "The idiom toe the line from an athletics analogy originated in the early 19th century" (514)."

Paul Krugman tells Republicans 'I told You So'! He rubs a few inconvenient truths in their faces that they can't admit . President Obama's Stimulus was a SUCCESS and would have brought America's economy back even faster and stronger if only it had been BIGGER. Check this out: http://readersupportednews.org/off-site-opini... " At this point the economic case for austerity - for slashing government spending even in the face of a weak economy - has collapsed. Claims that spending cuts would actually boost employment by promoting confidence have fallen apart. Claims that there is some kind of red line of debt that countries dare not cross have turned out to rest on fuzzy and to some extent just plain erroneous math. Predictions of fiscal crisis keep not coming true; predictions of disaster from harsh austerity policies have proved all too accurate. "
