    After experiencing Obama's excellently-run 2008 campaign, it was discouraging to see Democrats completely abandon all those lessons learned about successful campaigning. Horrifying, even. Sacrificing not only the election, but also a lost decade, thanks to redistricting. 2010 perhaps couldn't have been stopped, but it could have been a lot less harsh had better attention been paid to it.

    Nobody was systematically organized to register voters at colleges everywhere. For one glaring example. They're using the VAN database more now, so at least that's something, even if mostly in the proliferation of surprise emails asking for money for candidates I've never heard of. (I keep unsubscribing, but new ones keep showing up all the time.)

    At any rate: There's a lot of room for improvement on GOTV efforts. Glad to hear there'll be work on that front, even if only in selected states and districts.

    Mark Twain: It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
