  1. Hey, <a href="; Here’s a picture from her press conference. Looks like she’s had more “work” done.

  2. The TEA Party did such a spendid job in 2010. If they can repeat their success and add to the number, the Democrats will have even less to choose from. Even the Chinese communists had enough sense to turn over leadership to younger members.

  3. One of the great ironies of the Democratic party is that even though it had majority support in the recent election (albeit by a small margin), it really lacks charismatic leaders. Besides Pres. Obama, there really aren’t any real “rock stars” within the Democratic party in the same way that the Republicans have guys like Marco Rubio. The fact that Pres. Obama can’t run again and that there are no obvious charismatic figures to take his place on the national stage gives me a lot of hope. Yes, we do need to think about how to reach the young, the unmarried, and minorities, but Pres. Obama’s personality and aura unquestionably still had an effect on a lot of people. Other than Pres. Obama, who is actually popular with rank-and-file Democrats? And a related irony is that even though young people disproportionately support the Democratic party, Democratic leaders are disproportionately old while Republicans have many prominent office holders under 50, be they senators, representatives, or governors.

  4. “isn’t exactly a youth movement. Steny Hoyer [is] 73 years old… Contrast the ages of the House Democratic leadership with that of the House Republicans. .. Eric Cantor is 49. … Kevin McCarthy is just 47.”

    “I will not make age an issue of this campaign. I am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent’s youth and inexperience,” Ronald Reagan quipped during the 1984 presidential debates when asked if, at 73, he is too old to be President.

  5. Pelosi refuses to leave the stage when she should have gone after losing the House in 2010; she’s overstaying her welcome. She embodies the Democrat Party’s stagnation. Another ObamaCare backlash is coming just in time for 2014…
