“I think Republicans will not win again in my lifetime for the presidency unless they become a new GOP, a new Republican Party. And it has to be a transformation, not a little tweaking at the edges.”– Sen. Rand Paul (R) in an interview with Glenn Beck on Thursday

And then…

“There isn’t a Republican party. I wish there were, I wish there was a Republican party. I wish there was one person we could sit across the table from and make a deal and make the compromise and know when you got up from the table that the deal was done.”–Vice President Joe Biden at the House Democratic policy conference on Friday
