1. This wasn't a 50 state election.
So I am not sure that your comment is valid.

3. he had a strategy of spending money in all 50 states so that we were ready every where
have no seat unchallenged - we had a crappy candidate in virginia against a former lt governor who was one of Pat Robertson trainees - we did not have enough of the right democrats in races - or running their campaigns - he knew what the hell he was doing

20. Yes, we had a crappy person running in Virginia, but he won the primary against
McAuliffe and Moran. He was the man that Democrats in the state chose. It wasn't the fact that we weren't running a 50 stsate campaign. I am not sure that McAuliffe or Moran would have done better. The problem is that Democrats did not turn out for the election of the man they chose.

4. not what I meant - he had a bigger picture view - his strategies would
work where there were races at all levels - school boards which is where the conservative wing nuts are getting their foot in the door. the Virginia gov was a former lt gov who was Pat Robertson trainee.

5. Again, OFA has staff in every state except UT & WY
Maybe the people under the bus ran and laid down under there because they prefer playing martyr over fighting.

10. Which means nothing for local elections. But hey like so many of the OFA folks said today local
elections aren't meanigful. They only vote in "important" races.

16. I actually was and am a Deaniac (still have my shirts from 2004) I'm sorry for the
confusion from your OP--

Personally, I think Rahm is a tool.

Mea Culpa.

7. The DLC has been throwing Howard Dean under the bus since 2003
Hell, the fucking bastards ran over him with the bus when they put that filthy stinking piece of shit ad on TV that compared him to the Bush Crime Family's favorite Saudi terrorist puppet.

And don't even get me started on the Iowa scam.

They thought they got rid of him then. They thought wrong.

There would be no Democratic party today without Howard Dean. And those filthy fake Democrats are trying to undo everything he did. How long are we going to let them get away with it?

Let tonight be a lesson, fakers. No more support for phony Repuke lite "centrists". Be a REAL Democrat, or admit you're a fucking Republican. Don't waste our time with bullshit.

13. Exactly what I meant - I finallly voted someone in last election - grayson
he is a good ROI - there was no voting in my county today - no races at all - I saw this virginia race when it started. the former lt governor (pat robertson trainee) against a guy who could barely win a race in his small section of the state - that was a lost from the beginning - we had no candidate - they should have been building up a candidate as soon as that guy won the lt governor position - everyone was cheering how it went blue and didn't see this second in command wing nut
