I want to see a Walker vs. Warren run. That would be amusing. Warren trying to prove that she has what it takes to run a nation with no experience against Walker who has ran (and won) at the Executive level, crushed his opponents repeatedly just by common sense alone and has won over many Democrats and Liberals within his own State.
It would be a bigger shell-lacking than the Reagan-Dukakis election!
I foresee a lot of Blue Dog Democrats coming out of the closet in 2016.

If the Republicans lose badly in 2016 with paper ballots ... then the GOP fielded the worst possible candidate.
But, cry not. The U.S. is still full of Democrats with all manner of "inventive" ideas for Voter Fraud:

Republicans will spend the next two years arguing among themselves and demonstrating that they're not fit to govern.
Voter turnout is typically much lower and much more Republican for mid terms. IF Dems manage to get people to actually go out and vote, they should win in a landslide.
If Hillary runs, it is widely expected she will take much of the Southern vote, which for at least the last 40 years has been a bastion of Republican support.
Given that the US Presidential vote is so geared to the electoral college, instead of being a direct national vote, the likelihood of a Dem loss is very low, considering they have over a 100 vote lead in the electoral college given state by state Hillary opinion polls.
BTW - When the media tells you that the NATIONAL vote is "very close, within less than 5%", don't listen to them. The NATIONAL VOTE doesn't matter - AT ALL. Voting for President is NOT a national vote, as much as they'd like to have you believe. It's a state by state vote. Watch the state by state polling, not the national polls, to get a more accurate version of how close the election is.
In 2012, Mitt Romney never came within 100 Electoral College votes of Obama, although media kept trying to say how close it was by citing National Polls of less than a 2% difference. In reality it was never even close.
Any different up your way? I think not.....
