is that she can articulate a problem that you agree with? What has she prescribed as a solution? Until she does that, she's done nothing to warrent giving her any power.

Anyone can identify problems. But as we've seen with Obama, that doesn't translate into workable solutions ... especially (like Obama) if she has no track record of actually implementing any solutions.

The GOP will nominate a governor (several will be running) who has actually solved problems.

because he will be 75 years old in 2016. Jus sayin.

This results in cases where little boys are suspended from school because they chewed their mornng toast into the shape of a hand gun, teenaged girls are suspended from school for sharing a Midol tablet with her girlfriend because it violated the rule about sharing drugs, and old ladies in wheelchairs are told to loosen their Depends so TSA can search for weapons.
