"Maybe the new faces won't be any more effective than the old ones but at least there's some hope."

Not with that attitude there isn't. That is the very attitude that renders me pretty fucking hopeless. Expecting a different outcome by engaging in the identical, same behavior you have always had, is the definition of either stupidity, and very evil cynicism, or some combination of both.

Why will electing a DIFFERENT Harvard educated, silver spoon in his mouth raised, multi-millionare media mogul, Democratic party loyalist liberal, change ANYTHING???

"We all (mostly) see what the status quo is doing to this country."

No you don't, Jerry. Or if you do, you are choosing to bury your head in the sand, and pretend like it isn't REALLY happening. Or maybe, that all you are willing to do about it is keep sending checks to the Democratic party and it's candidates, and voting for them every single time you get the chance.

And as for the African American vote, in my experience, the majority of them in the Democratic party are as conservative as any right wing, Southern Reagan Democrat, except on race issues. So they are just as much a part of the problem as Joe Lieberman and Ned Lamont is.
