  •  You might care if (4.00)
    you busted but to bring the Democratic party alive in your district, reconstituting it, bringing people out and getting the active, working hard for a candidate that has a shot to win, digging in and doing the hard work of getting your message out and building a campaign - almost all by volunteers - only to be told "We'll take over now, we know best. We'll run our candidate and make sure money funnels her way so if you could just step out of the way, that would be great. Even better, why not forget the candidate who made this a winnable district and come volunteer for ours."

    If you experienced that, as those in IL-06 have, you might suddenly care about conflicts between the Dem machine and the grassroots.
