  •  Hm. (0+ / 0-)

    Are you suggesting that Rahm might have more luck if he were saying,

    Dr. Dean is doing crucial long-term work and we can't derail that by using his resources - so we need you help today to take back the Congress this year?

    That kind of coordination would never make it as a soap opera plot.

      But I think you've somehow taken my post to be about Emanuel's fundraising failures. It's not.

      What it is about is making sure that the entrenched, old-guard DC Dems - the ones who think Dean is a fool, the ones who muscled good people like Paul Hackett out of the primaries - understand that most of the grassroots like Dean and support what he's doing.

      When he stops walking out of meetings with Dean and when he shows the slightest inclination to embrace the wishes of the grassroots, Rahm Emanuel will be a-ok fine with me.

      Make sense?

        1. There seems to be a simple way for the different action groups in the party to build a coordinated message.
        1. Rahm isn't taking that path.

        The soap opera business was snark -- we're getting the drama and daily plot twists, but not the effectiveness, from the people driving this.
