    It is easy to get progressives elected in places like New York City. But not in areas that are not historically sympathetic. I would look to places that used to be staunchly Republican but aren't any more, and try to figure out what happened. For example, how in the world did Vermont become Obama's second best state? It never even voted for Franklin Roosevelt! Duplicate that all over the US and you will put an end to the wingnut influence forever.

    •  And understand where Democrats are failing. (0+ / 0-)

      CA and IL are two Democratic jewels that are both facing financial ruin.

      IL pensions are deeply underfunded.  This is the kind of thing that will produce a bitter and divisive fight in the future.  We cannot allow this kind of mismanagement.
