    The fifty state strategy is inherently dangerous to those who wish to control the Democratic Party from the top. A truism.

    This would be the case even if Carville/Emanuel were not carrying water for Hilary Clinton. Many consequences arise from a strong perimeter, and most of these consequences are not palatable to DLC/centralizers. Influence in selecting candidates is one, since ultimately this determines the makeup of elected Democratic politicians. Fundraising, and the control/blackmail that ensues is another.

    This will be an ongoing struggle, and the Emanuels and their Carvillesque factotums will not give up, since it means shifting some control of the Democratic Party away from the DLC.
