If it happens, this will be an incredible choice by Obama.
It would sure put a twist in the knickers of Cornyn, McConnell etc al. As well as the more liberal Dems.

A Dubai airliner crashed in Russia this morning; cause unknown. Horrible.

"Brexit: An often rocky marriage ends in sudden divorce:"

Full points, 2nd. You've managed to make this divorce related.

I expect that it won't be too long before the British people come to regret the vote of this week.

The Best line that I've heard about the Brexit: "The voters of the UK have just voted to make themselves poorer because they don't like living next door to some Poles."

Buyer's remorse seemed to set in almost immediately. Last headline I saw there were 2.5 million asking for a do-over. Paul Krugman paraphrased: The European experiment has failed.

Will Scotland seperate? Will Ireland reunite? Why isn't anyone talking about Wales?

The Welsh voted to leave the EU. They are happy with the results. And there isn't as much of a nationalistic movement in Wales as there is in Scotland.

I spent six weeks of my life in Wales, in 1991, for a plant start up. I had to spend the entire six weeks correcting the Welsh Gaelic which, as it turns out, is not exactly Irish Gaelic. Who knew?

Loved the Canadian Parliament's cheer of "four more years" for Obama. Yep, he's just despised by our international allies (BEG).
