  •  whatever we do, we can't primary him (1+ / 0-)

    that would give an edge to the Republican.

    We can, however, primary progressives, with the support of OFA leadership because that makes us stronger.

    /snark (just in case...you never know. I think it's obvious snark but sometimes it's hard to tell)

    •  What progressive is OFA primarying? (1+ / 0-)

      I know President Obama endorsed Honda, so I'll need another name, unless you were deliberately implying something while keeping deniability ("OFA leadership").  But I think that also is false, unelss you mean Bird who worked for the campaign and now is on his own, which is a real stretch.

      as for rpimarying Baucus, that's up to the folks in Montana.  Yelling "primary him" here usually does not move Montana voters.  I think Schweitzer could beat him if he wants it.

      •  Schweitzer would certainly be better (1+ / 0-)

        at least, on taxes. Maybe not on guns.

        Barack Obama for President

      •  Jeremy Bird, National Field Director doesn't count (0+ / 0-)

        ?

        Larry Grisolano, Director of Paid Media (what??) doesn't count?

        They're both working for Khanna.

        They must not have heard that primaries are bad things.

        •  Yes, and Obama endorsed Honda. (1+ / 0-)

          I think what you are doing is disengenuous because Obama's endorsement goes farther.  Bird and Grisolano do not work for OFA anymore, to my knowledge.

          Honda is using Obama's endorsement.
