Headline of the Day: Election 2016 Edition
Who will be the Democratic nominee in 2016? Shut up, that's who.
From the department of You’ve Got to Be Effing Kidding Me:”The 2016 Election, Already Upon Us.”
DISTANT as it may now seem, with the Republican race dominating the news and President Obama sitting in the White House, the Democrats are not all that far from the tumult of another nominating contest themselves.
No matter what happens on Election Day in November, when Mr. Obama wakes up the next morning, he will no longer be the future of his party. If he loses, attention will immediately turn to which Democrat might be able to pick up the pieces from the deep disappointment of his one term. If he wins, the party will begin turning to who might be able to accomplish the difficult task of winning a third straight term for one party. Already, the jockeying for 2016 has begun.
Let’s stipulate that David Leonhardt is technically right here. Nonetheless, can I get a “Shut the hell up, David Leonhardt”?
