November 4, 2016 12:32 PM Log in to Reply edatlanta Good call. She’s probably toast but my guess is Democrats all over the place were lulled into a false sense of security and stay home, which could make things neat. November 4, 2016 1:00 PM Log in to Reply Will Kremer Not likely with Clinton v Trump. Then again, Clinton hasn’t excited the Democratic base like Obama did in 2012. Your guess is as good as mine. My partisan hope is she wins reelection (not to mention she’s a very kind person who, I think, would do well for that area) November 4, 2016 1:15 PM Log in to Reply davidmac Ugh. The reform of the JQC is just a political ax-grinding. I hope it fails miserably.

It’s act 2: https://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/599/seriously. I still voted no on it, but I had to think about it. There’s a cool bonus song at the end too.
