    If nothing else, get Obama to go to Texas a lot, get the Dem SuperPACs to run a lot of ads there.  Get the Republicans to really squirm in their seats while at the same time drumming up our base.  We may not win it, but we can make it closer... We can make it easier for next time... We can really scare the crap out of the other side.

    •  Bingo, use 2012 as a springboard. (4+ / 0-)

      Use this election to build up the Dem infrastructure in the almost/soon-to-be battleground states like Texas, get people registered to vote, make the Republicans fight on "their" turf. Even if we can't flip states like Texas this year, a solid ground game might make them competitive in the 2014 mid-terms or 2016. The Democratic Party needs to plan for the long game even as they work to win in 2012.
