  •  We need to remember what worked for us (6+ / 0-)

    and what didn't work for Romney, so we can build on that knowledge in 2014 and 2016.

    •  Absolutely. And make sure core voters know (1+ / 0-)

      turning out in other elections, Virginia elects state officials in 2013, and mid terms is crucial to not revisit 2010 in 2014 and two frustrating end years of this administration.

      A point to make as well is that Obama and the Senate can do damn little to end voter suppression in the state houses and nothing much on gerrymandering. We can by changing the occupants in those state and local offices.

      It may even be possible to undo some of the extreme gerrymandering by pushing for true independent, non-partisan redistricting to make more cohesive and competitive districts. I believe a Texas out of cycle redistricting passed court muster, though I also believe it was to do something of the opposite.

      The only foes that threaten America are the enemies at home, and those are ignorance, superstition, and incompetence. [Elbert Hubbard]
