     I'm not talking about myself, personally, but we -- meaning Democratic activists -- have developed a very, very strong and powerful tool to beat back the corporate media, and that's the netroots and the blogosphere. There are plenty of tools available here for the Dem leadership to use if they want to effectively fight Republicans. The leadership working in conjunction with the blogs would produce amazing results.

     Instead, they run away from us.

     And keep on losing debates (and elections) they should be winning.

      That we could be used better, I have no doubt.

        The Democratic "establishment" - meaning, incumbents and their sponsors - can be made to understand the problem.  Act Blue has it right:  "Primary" the wafflers.
