  •  Will Dems let Obama campaign with them (4+ / 0-)

    This will be the telling thing of 2014. Dems ran fast and far from President Obama in 2010 and lost badly.  Now that he won relection by a large margin will they bring him in one more time?  If they all say no then GOP will stay in power.  As upset as many people are with him. The President won relection.

    •  I think they should welcome his help in states (0+ / 0-)

      and areas he certain areas of those blue states especially.

      They should welcome him in Cleveland, Philly,  Madison,  Miami, to name a few places where the President  did very well.

      I think the President could help drive out turnout in certain urban and suburban areas where he is quite popular.

    •  Um, no they didn't (0+ / 0-)

      I was on a campaign in 2010. They didn't run from Obama, they did the exact opposite: they let his people run the damn national coordinated. The 2010 national coordinated's GOTV efforts--I shit you not--utilized TRADING CARDS to get people to commit to vote.

      If you look at how people who said 'no thanks' to that "help" did--Harry Reid, Joe Sestak, THE ENTIRE STATE OF CALIFORNIA--they outperformed OFA embarrassingly. Hell, California had a goddamn Democratic wave year in 2010.

      Every human being must be viewed according to what it is good for; for none of us, no, not one, is perfect; and were we to love none who had imperfections, this world would be a desert for our love.
