  •  I Just Want to Win in November. (3+ / 0-)

    It was an agonizing decision. I don't know what is "best"; I just know that turn-out is the key and we have to get voters enthusiastic in an off-presidential election year. Hopefully, we will succeed. If we can get Dems to the polls this year like we did last year, we will win. In fact, we will sweep the ticket. However, if turn-out is low, then the Teabaggers will sweep the ticket like they did before.

    We cannot afford that.

    Thanks for your posting on this.

    •  I HATE mid-term elections. For some reason, many (3+ / 0-)

      people just do not understand how crucial it is to vote in the off-years in order to maintain and sustain progress realized in the presidential election years.

      I've tried so hard to get my family members and friends motivated to participate regularly.  They pretty much just give a collective yawn and "humor" my weird fascination with politics...while not even thinking about bestirring themselves to go to the polls.  After all, "those politicians are ALL crooks, y'know".  

      Then, they complain about the rightwing nutjobs who get elected and decide all their economic problems are the  "guvmint's" fault.  And who is the "guvmint"?  Obama, of course!
