    2008 had the (really good) problem of too many high quality targets.

    We've learned that the key thing is to field well funded, high quality candidates everywhere.  In a lot of places, that can be thankless work for the candidate, since the odds don't favor you.

    But odds are odds, and sometimes, you get lucky. Bachmann almost blew enough for Tinklenberg to win, but while he was a good candidate, the extra money probably came a bit too late for him to win.

    We had half of the equation right this time: we had a good candidate.  He just didn't get enough help until too late.

    "If another country builds a better car, we buy it. If they make a better wine, we drink it. If they have better healthcare . . . what's our problem? "
