I supported him and I hope he serves TWO full terms!
I supported him and I see no reason he shouldn't serve out this one term.
I supported him but I've seen and heard enough to want him impeached ASAP.

If they can find anybody who is halfway reasonable, qualified, competent, and likable then they should walk away with it. I don't know that they have anybody.

They have several possibilities. The problem with the Party is that the People Who Run Things want one of their cronies as the candidate, and go out of their way to stop the outsiders from getting the nomination. Barack Obama defied them when they told him to "wait his turn", and won. Hillary Clinton was helped by party heads and superdelegates to a nomination, and lost. Think the Party will learn from this? My cynical side says "no" - but I could stand to be surprised.

One candidate I might support: Congressman Seth Moulton. Could he get the nomination? Only if he can do an Obama and succeed in spite of the Party.

I like this guy! I like his unflinching honesty. But as stated in the article, he's pretty green, politically.

From the article you linked:

Quote:They dismiss Moulton, albeit never for attribution, as gratingly ambitious, a grandstanding backbencher who has advocated for the ouster of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to make way for new, younger standard-bearers—like himself.

And he's right. Oldsters clinging to their positions is stultifying the growth process.

Quote:They see Moulton’s message of country over party as not so much admirable as annoying.

Sickening.

Moulton is the real deal. Since I live in Mass, I get to hear a lot from and about him. I respect him tremendously and hope he goes on to bigger and better offices.

Not sure I agree - in congress there should be some people with many years experience. Experience DOES count for something. That said, some of them should definitely retire. New blood is needed - some of those guys look asleep all the time.

I do like to see younger people in the white house ....but that is just a general observation and I judge each individual on his/her own merits. Age itself should never be the deciding factor.

It's a higher view now that he's removing some standard gop long time figureheads not that it really is gonna be some new change by him

I hadn't heard about him before tonight. I sure appreciate y'all bringing him up on the radar.
