  •  I've never given the DNC a nickel (0+ / 0-)

    Not even in the Dean days. I keep it all at home (WA), and I encourage "what we raise here stays here" in all my party activities.

    There are always enough local high rollers who will give money to the DNC. It makes them feel like big shots. I want rank and file Democrats to practice, get used to practicing, and get used to exercising local control.

    My wish is that every state party will get strong enough, and unassailable enough, to negotiate with the DNC on a more level playing field over how states will organize and mobilize, during and between election cycles.
