Anyone have a question?

It's Question Day. You ask questions, I answer them. Open topic. Presidential nominations? Midterm elections? Senate rules? Democracy or representation? Something off the wall? I'll answer as many as I can. Leave them in comments here, or via email, or tweet them to me @jbplainblog. As always, I'll try to do a bunch, and at the end of the day I'll go back into comments here and try to give quick answers to many of the rest.

I always have fun doing these. So start 'em coming.
