  •  Obama, Plouffe, Axelrod, etc deserve MacArthur (20+ / 0-)

    Genius grants for the polling, planning and execution of the 2012 election. Just like his administrative record, Obama's achievements seem to take time for everyone - including the base - to catch up and realize just how INCREDIBLE he is and what he's accomplished.

    Will anyone tout this or give him credit (I see more diaries about Nate here than the Obama campaign)? No. But I guarantee when he leaves office he will get his due as one of the greatest presidents ever.

    Think of the billions of dollars spent to get him out and the genius of his win. A win that his campaign outlined to everyone multiple times over the past few months. And many people, including kossacks, did not believe or did not pay attention.

    That's the most beautiful part of all: this campaign was the equivalent of Babe Ruth pointing to the stands and hitting the homer. Exactly. Where. He. Wanted.

    I'd like to see some Rec'd diaries about THAT.

      Time had a nice read about the IT
      and 'quants' that helped to win 2012.

      Here is hoping that this infrastructure is
      somehow brought to bear on the US house
      in two years, starting now, if possible.

      Of course, if history is any guide, the other team
      will no doubt grease the skids for us by soon trying
      to gin up any type of non issue possible for impeachment.

      They wouldn't be so foolish twice, would they?

      Thanks for all of your efforts.
