    they featured, not your typical RedState dreck. Most of these people seem like they're reasonable and sane, just really ill-informed. I view them as potention future swing voters. I absolutely see an opening for turning at least 5-10% of the electorate towards being more open to progressive ideas and voting for Dems on a regular basis, over time. The right managed to do this, so surely we can too. They appeal to peoples' fears, prejudices, wants and ignorance. We appeal to their more rational and decent sides. I refuse to believe that there isn't a large subset of people who can't be convinced to value the latter over the former.
