  •  I Worked The Carter Campaign For... (5+ / 0-)

    ...my county in 1976. It was wonderful. We had support from the national party, both in money and in effort, as well as from the Carter campaign. We blanketed the local airwaves, excited the people, and worked a well-funded whirlwind of a GOTV effort.

    And Texas went blue! Back when there were a hell of a lot less minorities on the voting roll.

    Today we get shit from the national party and presidential candidates -- along with blame for having to work with "ignorant" minority voters. As a result shit is what we get back on election day.

    A similar focus from the national party, and presidential candidates, would go a long way towards achieving what the diarist does not foresee until the next decade.
