It seems the vibrant, lively air has gone stale in Washington and frankly people are tired of it. So tired that both democrat and republic parties are having trouble filling seats in congress. On Morning Joe on MSNBC he did a segment pertaining to issues with finding willing individuals for the senate seats for the 2014 elections. “This used to be the prestigious position. You asked a governor now. What do you like better being a governor or a senator they all laugh.”
If your a governor or CEO of a business you can take a position on an idea and implement it almost instantly. In the senate nothing gets done and they trash talk you. Joe then shares a story of how he dealt with lies about him once it caught wind he might be running for the senate in 2006. David Axelrod who was the former senior advisor to President Obama advised that some of the issues are if your a conservative the big worry is primaries and going against a candidate who is far to the right than you may be. The other issue is that fact that a bill you have to get up to as many as 60 votes in your favor. It’s hard enough in my house to agree on whats for dinner Chinese or pizza, take out or dine in.
