  •  Practice run for 2014 (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    While it was not good to lose these elections, they can be considered practice runs for the 2014 elections as a whole.  In general it may have been a better outcome to experience failure early, so that it can be learned from.  I always say that we learn more from mistakes and failures than we learn from successes, and a much larger challenge faces us in 2014.  Complacency is a dangerous attitude when facing a determined opponent.  Application of the lessons learned for the larger elections next year are critical.  People have to learn that all politics are local, and local elections must be attended or their lives will be affected where they live.  There is no election too small to be ignored.
