    I can understand the need for optimism. But we shouldn't put on rosy-tinted glasses in order to make conditions look nicer than they are.

    Enthusiasm for Obama-- and Democrats generally-- has plummeted since the heady days of 2008. The best chance we have is if the national Republicans select someone so friggin' bad that voters decide to "stay the course." Not out of optimism; not because of "hope." But out of fear of the GOP madness.

    And frankly, I don't feel very comfortable relying upon a strategy which relies at its core on the argument, "the Republicans are worse."
