  •  I don't think it's mutually exclusive. (3+ / 0-)

    I like both of your points here.

    But something else that isn't mutually exclusive is vigorously defending the merits of an issue (like a public option) and supporting the better side in a close race. In addition to educating people on the issues, we've got to take up our perennial problem of what kinds of leverage the Left has on our representatives, and how we can choose leverage other than our votes when our votes are so desperately needed.
