    How are you at tap dancing? I mean, who doesn't like tap dancing?

    Seriously now, do you like my list of suggestions? I'm not sure how some of our incumbents would react, but I think matching fund raising like that would be helpful to getting some of these people on their feet. It could also help to pull relatively good candidates into races. And if it works even better than I imagine it might, I don't think it'll be that draining on the DNC/DSCC's finances, given how small some of these states are.

      I suspect the Dem establishment already does a lot of this carrot and stick stuff.  Perhaps not enough.

      •  I'm guessing it doesn't. (0+ / 0-)

        Not to sound like I have my head too far up my own ass, but what I suggested above seems very basic and simple to implement. Yet, we still end up with disasters like the Senate race in Tennessee. Also, it's not as if this would be privileged, right? Eventually, even if it was only through disclosure reports, we'd see something in the numbers, or so I would think.
