    I mean to replace Pelosi, NOT DEAN... although Dean needs to focus on media as much as he focuses on grass roots.

      Pelosi needs to find her backbone or get out...it's her choice.

      Making the world a little better place can be fun.

      •  See, I got flamed for suggesting (0+ / 0-)

        that the caucus sling Pelosi under a bus for her stunts.  

        If SF can persuade Matt Gonzalez to challenge her ass in the Democratic Primary, if she loses, you replace her with Jack Murtha as Minority Leader, and you don't allow Steiny Hoyer no where near the steering wheel.

          Pelosi is much more progressive than Murtha.  Sure, Murtha would be a superb leader when it comes to Iraq, and a much more superb leader in general.  If we're objecting to people based on ideological grounds (such as Rep. Hoyer), then Pelosi wins even if she won't fight.

    •  Grassroots will win or lose for us (0+ / 0-)

      My belief is that the big media ads have lost their punch.  Most people see them as negative and misleading, an insult to their intelligence.  Big media is more and more empty of content, and local, personal, positive organizing will produce more and faster results.  All of us, lib, conservative and all in between want to belong to a society again, not sit in our homes stuck to the TV.  Dean is smarter than all the DLC added together.

      Patriotism may be the last refuge of scoundrels, but religion is assuredly the first.

      •  Doubt it. (0+ / 0-)

        Grass roots accomplished squat in the last election, and that was a huge one, with motivated bases on both sides.

        This election cycle will get half as many voters, with most of the no-shows coming from the less-disciplined liberals.
