  •  Stop pursuing Republican votes (1+ / 0-)

    Given the "identity politics" aspect, all the enormous compromises of our principles required in order to secure the support of even a tiny handful of Republican results in a net lossby turning off more Democratic voters than the GOP votes gained.  A hard-edged populism not only maintains the Democratic "identity" vote but in the current political environment offers chances for major inroads among the non-identity vote:  non-aligned voters and the usually non-vopting.  They are sick and tired and fed up with Bush and the GOP, but we MUST offer them a substantive alternative or they will simply sit the election out.
