It’s official: Mitt Romney will not seek the republican presidential nomination in 2016. I’d vote for him in a heartbeat, but apparently American voters demand pizzazz instead of economic sense and decency. After all, they elected a man who possesses neither, then re-elected him.

The problem is that some junior Dems are pushing for time limits on committee memberships. Senior Dems are not about to step aside, and certainly no one in the CBC is about to surrender a ranking member position.

It will be interesting to see the lengths the CBC will go to in order to exclude its new member, Republican Mia Love, who is as unwelcome there as Col. Allen West was.
