  •  Beauty Contests (none)
    Sterling, in talking about the primary calender in an earlier diary, you suggested more extensive "beauty contests".  I think that ties in very well to this idea.  By holding the kind of deliberative events (regional? state? both?) you're talking about, we not only open up the process and make it more democratic, we also give those who intend to run for office the chance to step up to the plate and demonstrate their leadership.  

    And, in a public forum, with the national media paying attention, we state clearly and without hesitation that conservative ideals have failed this country and harmed it's people.
