    money, 'cause they figure, if the fellow's rich, he won't be wanting to take theirs--that he's altruistic and wanting to give something back.
    What this election seems to say is that people are ready to throw out incumbents, if they're given a reasonable alternative. Democrats ignoring whole demographics do not inspire confidence. "Hush puppie" candidates are an insult.

    •  One thing that disappointed me in Virginia... (6+ / 0-)

      was the fact that many of the seats went to the GOP candidate -- uncontested! The Democratic Party needs to always put forward a candidate, if for no other reason than to highlight important topics and put them top-of-mind with the voters.

      We might only get 20 % or 30 % this time around, and might not win the next election or the one after that, but this is the only way to prepare fertile ground for an eventual victory!

        It's just malpractice not to run dems everywhere.  Especially when the electorate seems to want to throw everyone out.

        BO, of course, is not a party person.
