    this endeavor a 'heavy lift'.  But look at what we did! Dems have now gone into hard core GOP turf and won 3 elections (including NY 23) out of 7.  It shows that the working class white voter is not satisfied with the GOP and has no real interest in blind loyalty to that party.  If we can win these seats, and be as competitive as we were in the 2 we came up short, we can win anywhere. It also demonstrates to the national party that an appeal to economic populist themes couched in basic fairness is a real big winner with white voters ans.

    I also appreciate the effort and more than that the sheer audacity of what the Democrats in Wisconsin did.  I will never feel bad for Democrats who think and act big but come up a little short (though 17-16 does limit Walker's ability to do whatever he wants).  Today was a much needed shot in the arm for the Democratic Party.  That GOP House majority does not look so secure right now.
