    here on dKos and elsewhere.

    The Republicans swoop up college grads and undergrads, and start them off on the road to neo-conservatism with fairly-well-paid jobs in political action groups, or working for PACs or even candidates.

    The left still wants to get it's young labor gratis.

    I agree, this leads to a well-trained, well-heeled, well-connected group of young republican strategists and activitists.  Unfortunately, it also leads to a dearth of young democrats with either any knowledge, experience or desire to continue working in the political arena.

    Wish I had an answer for you.

      Well, I'll grant that the Entry is a little derivative, perhaps embarrassingly close to a violation of the No-Duplicate-Diaries Rule, but my goal was really to talk, not so much about issues, but about myself, a topic which is not widely represented on this site.  I suppose that should also embarrass me.  

      Regardless, these are important ideas, and, if the only method of dissemination availible is a sort of 'meme contagion' effected via repetition, then certainly I must reiterate them.
