    Hard to believe it's been six years.

    IMO that was the peak of Daily Kos (ok, maybe 7 years). But whatever this place is, it's still here. The elections guys are still doing great work, for example.

    Ok, so I read the polls.

      There was an aspect to being out of 'the system,' but simultaneously as powerful as it, that was very exciting. Being able to force one of the most powerful Democratic politicians out of the party -- and almost out of the Senate -- was indeed the highlight of the netroots movement and has yet to be reproduced.

      Never underestimate the ability of a Ned Lamont/Joe Lieberman type campaign to reignite the somewhat sleepy beast of our netroots movement, though, kick-starting goodness knows how many new local and issue-based blogs and netroots organizations.
