    Whenever Democrats talk about drawing congressional districts, we always talk in terms of making them fair and representative.  Whenever Republicans talk about it, they talk about wringing the greatest possible number of seats from the map.

    I agree that we can't simply focus on the next census, we have to build the infrastructure so that the next round of redistricting can't be hijacked the way 2010 was.  We need to get independent redistricting commissions constitutional amendments onto as many state ballots as possible.
