    By saying we need to run in every race, you are asking someone to short-shrift their work and family, give up all their leisure time, engage in the unpleasant task of being on the phone every day for hours trying to raise money and being turned down because the race IS hopeless — and doing all this for a year, only to be creamed. At the end, your family relationships, your friendships, your work, your hobbies, your patience are all in tatters. It takes an exceptional person to do this, and there aren't many of them. You are basically asking a person to shatter their life for no return — or else be a in-name-only candidate who raised $3,000, attends a couple of dinners, and calls it a campaign. It doesn't matter. In Oh-08, for instance, candidates who did it both ways lost to Boehnhead by the same margins.
