    What would be the toughest "loss" in your opinion, on you personally.

    I know everyone always has wins and losses during and election, and some sting more than others. What would you say would be the hardest you've dealt with, and similarly, what was the best win?

      The toughest for me personally was the day I came home from having my wisdom teeth out to, in agony and half out of it thanks to the sedative, seeing that Eliot Spitzer had gotten busted for soliciting prostitutes. I worked on two of his campaigns and also worked for the AG's office when he was AG (my first job out of college), so that was a terribly rough downfall. Though his first (and only) year as governor was pretty darn miserable, too.

      In 2010, I hated seeing Patrick Murphy lose probably above all else. He was someone whom the netroots had supported, with whom we had a good relationship, and who had been a real leader on repealing DADT. It sucked to see him go down. But he's a great guy and he will be back some day.
