    nominating a Democrat and not enhancing GOP credibility and building the Republicans brand at a time we should be striving to win back the House and win as many Democratic offices as we can at every level.  

    We need to be smarter about allocating every resource we possibly can to elect more and better Democrats.  At a time when Citizens United makes it increasingly challenging to match the GOP in financial resources should we consider a nomination for SOD to be a precious resource we should invest in our side not the opposition?

    If we looked hard enough couldn't we find a qualified Democrat who could use 4 years of experience as DOD to enhance their competitiveness for future office, perhaps a future Senator, or House of Rep victory in one of these gerrymandered CDs we need to take back the House in future elections?

    •  I have no idea if Shinseki is a Democrat - (0+ / 0-)

      but that's not a problem.  Nor should it be.

      We shouldn't be treating this as a career stepping stone.

      It's too important.
