  •  I agree with your second paragraph... (0+ / 0-)

    Not that I disagree with the other two, exactly, just that this is the one I wanted to follow up.
    I agree that we need to target the rural vote.  Ford knew that too, and he tried, he spent two months bussing around rural districts talking to people.  The problem was, I think, that no matter how much he talks, the ads that told everybody he was a career politician from Memphis and Washington DC turned off the rural voters.  They don't like city boys, and Ford is definately a city boy.

    •  Democratic BBQ chains are the key to the south (0+ / 0-)

      Dems seem to represent urbanites and blacks to the south.  So we need to connect with the rural folks.  Through an excellent pulled pork sandwich!  Because even a racist southern will appreciate fine bbq, even if from someone like Ford.
