  •  All the more reason for focusing on turning out. (7+ / 0-)

    The Left needs to be committed to beating Republicans everywhere, and in every contest. No matter what else is going on, the first mission is to eliminate our most intractable obstacle which is anyone who holds office as a Republican.

    Congress, state legislatures, local councils all matter. We must have the votes there if we are going to change things for the better.

    We can start by not assuming that people of color are just going to default to the Democratic Party in amounts sufficient to win elections. I think a good start would be to not assume their position on policies and politicians as seems to be the case in too many instances on the Left.

    Nurture all of the coalition and good things will happen.

    The politicians may be bought, and the system corrupt, but it is our duty to fix these things.
