  •  The first word that jumps to mind (15+ / 0-)

    is "elegant."  But she's also very clever...as is Wendy Davis in Texas.

    The Republicans have long been working on minimizing the voting rights of those it presumes will vote Democratic.  Voter caging, limiting early and online voting, ridiculous registration and ID requirements, etc.

    Making GOTV a centerpiece of the election season is inspired.  It gives an opportunity to explain the tricks that are being attempted (which should piss everyone off) but it also allows a perfect segue into the party's/candidate's positions.

    "Here are the candidates who will best represent you if they're elected...but Republicans don't want you voting at all!  Stop them from denying your rights!  Show them what you think of their tricks by voting!"

    Nobody doesn't wish he had more education.
