22. Democrats need to stay where they are now, it's a winning position.

Even if republican's swing right, democrats must stay put because swinging right to the new center will take democrats to a toe into the crazy zone. Republicans have Jed Bush for 2016, some republicans say Christie, but Christie's star should be badly damaged by 2016.
I am concerned about the democrats bench. O'Malley is an early favorite, but his performance at the DNC is concerning. Can O'Malley stand up to a Jeb over a general campaign? Deval Patrick is an outstanding Governor, speaks and fights well, but his wife may pull him out of a national race, she is a highly competent professional woman, but she doesn't appear to relish the public spotlight. Kristen Gillibrand has the looks, pedigree and style to run, but she appears to be prone to small gaffes and has problems hitting talking points hard.
