    You want to know why Obama won?
    He was positive, kept pushing for inclusivity and realized that the voting populace could be increased by bringing those unlikely voters out of the shadows.

    We win when we vote.  Policy is one thing, Inspiration/Vision is another, but it all comes down to GOTV.

    Being pessimistic is not useful.  Being realistic is.  Reality says that you need several cycles to get wins in areas.  My favorite story is the 3x candidate that finally knocks off the powerful incumbent (see: Bera vs. Lungren).  Persistence needed to sustain a multi-cycle view requires a positive outlook.

    I think OFA knew this back in 2008 - even in the primary cycle. Focused on what mattered - running up the score in red states.

    We need to do that again. 50 State strategy + retail politics = WIN.
