Should 2016 Democrats Break with Obama?

Walter Shapiro makes the case that 2016 Democratic White House hopefuls -- Hillary Clitnon and Joe Biden aside -- should speak out against flawed Obama policies like NSA spying and the terribly mishandled sequester.

"Yes, it's counter-intuitive to break--however gently--with a popular president of your own party. But, in case you haven't noticed, it's also counter-intuitive for you to think about going up in 2016 against someone like Hillary Clinton or Biden."

"Running for president is not for the fainthearted. But there is a void in the Democratic Party waiting to be filled by a credible figure on Obama's left flank. And if you don't have the courage to fill it in 2016, trust me, someone else will."
