In his 2009 re-election race, [Los Angeles mayor] Villaraigosa squeaked by with a small majority even though he was running virtually unopposed and outspent his nearest competitor by 15 to 1.

That such an unimpressive figure was chosen to chair this year's Democratic National Convention is a sign of just how shallow the Democrats' bench is. Having already been promoted several notches above his level of incompetence, Villaraigosa fulfilled party watchers' worst fears during a controversial floor vote over the last-minute inclusion of the words "God" and "Jerusalem" in the party's platform. When the voice vote split with no clear winner, Villaraigosa appeared torn between his instinct for party machine strong-arming and his longing to appear statesmanlike. Painful moments of dead air ensued, during which the nearly 60-year-old mayor looked like a little boy overwhelmed by the complexities of a man's job. At last, he unbelievably declared a supermajority, to a chorus of boos that ended up being the convention's defining moment.

Put it this way: The only "stars" the dems have are a few Mayors (Booker, the San Antonio guy, Villaraigosa, Rahm Emanuel), Hillary!, Andrew Cuomo, Deval Patrick, Mark Warner, Tim Kaine, Martin O’Malley...and Biden. Maybe the guy who's Gov of Montana.

That's pretty much who they have for '16. None of these people have lit the world afire in their current jobs but the media will make them each out to be the smartest person alive, even Biden.

The Dems just need to find a liberal reasonably articulate black man or black woman to run in 2016 and they'll win easily - white guilt. <g>
