    So I just read this article, might explain why the GOP doesn't want immigration reform: http://blogs.reuters.com/nicholas-wapshott/2013/02/01/what-will-11-million-new-citizens-mean/

    Is Hillary in any shape to be running for or serving as President, what with that recent blood clot issue and her stay in the hospital?

    She's fine. The blood clot was caused by the concussion when she fainted and slipped in the bathroom (from dehydration caused by a stomach virus). The doctors said she'd be fine, just prescribed her to wear glasses instead of contacts for a while.

    Didn't you see her at the Benghazi hearing? She was in top form.

    I click the "Contact" button but nothing's happening. What a scam.

    i clicked on it and blood started pouring out of her eyes, nose, and mouth. then i heard a gravelly voice in my head that said "SUBMIT, REBELLIOUS CHILD. YOU MUST BE MANAGED."

    I was adamantly opposed to Clinton as the Democratic nominee in '08, but I intend to wholeheartedly support her should she run in '16. I'm wondering if there are others out there like this.

    I voted for her in the primary the first time. I'd vote for again.

    Clinton/Biden 2016!

    Because we absolutely need Joe around as VP :cool:

    Holy ****. John Boehner and "foreplay" in the same sentence. [face_sick]

    They were just harping on that on CNN when I was trying to find out more about the Dorner thing. I guess my immediate reaction is "Unprofessional, but it's the State of the Union response, who gives a ****?"

    [face_laugh] That's almost as bad as John Edward fiddling with his hair.

    Yeah it's never relevant, but Rubio was so sweaty and awkward and kept poking his own head (as well as being ridiculous in what he was saying) that it's a little noteworthy. Kind of like Bobby "why do we need volcano monitoring? [face_cowboy] " Jindal.

    Btw, was anyone ese really happy that Obama started the speech by talking about stuff that was once considered sci-fi? Like a 3D printing revolution, mapping the human brain to unlock the secrets of consciousness, etc.

    I also wasn't predicting that he'd announced plans for Universal Pre-Kindergarten, or an increase of the Minimum Wage to $9/hour and then index it to automatically rise with inflation.

    I know Obama has talked about all these things before, but it was nice to see them featured in the SOTU.
