  •  We need to run up the score. FDR had _immense_ (14+ / 0-)

    leads in Congress and was finally able to do something about the Supremes by threatening them with "helper" Justices.

    We have a lot of state legislatures to fix, a completely non-functional Senate, and have to re-capture the house.

    We need to run the table all the way down to dog-catcher in 435 districts.

    Calling Howard Dean.  We need you at the DNC.

    Happy little moron, Lucky little man.

      But I think it begins at the top.  We need our candidates clambering to get near Obama's coattails, not being Republican-lite and standing against him.  And I think you're right.  Howard Dean is perfect for the job.  Not keeping him as head of the DNC was Obama's biggest mistake.

      Ceterum censeo Factionem Republicanam esse delendam.

      Buried in polling released last week by Public Policy Polling, Democrats in Iowa, New Hampshire and North Carolina are surging in legislative polling.

          Iowa: Democrats lead 44-39 (D+5)
          New Hampshire: Democrats lead 47-41 (D+6)
          North Carolina: Democrats lead 46-41 (D+5)

      This brings to six the number of states where Democrats have taken clear leads in legislative polling this year. Earlier surveys in Colorado, Minnesota, and Maineshowed Democrats leading by 7%, 9%, and 14%, respectively. Republican state legislators earned no better than an anemic 41% in any of these polls.
