    who they are.

    More than anything, they've got to stop being stupid. Though many will disagree, there aren't enough stupid people to win elections on a consistent basis, AND -- stupid people are spread all over the spectrum anyway.

    Besides, working too hard to attract the stupid will drive away the not-so-stupid.

    Whether or not the GOP gets its act together or is supplanted by something else, it's hard for me to imagine the Democrats enjoying a long dominance like that of FDR->Truman.

    Politicians are too stupid (not IQ stupid so much as hubris stupid) to stay in the electorate's good graces that long, especially in the age of the internet.
