  •  The point.... (none)
    ok fine...he had to run that way in TX and in that district.

    The ads will be used against him on TV appearances.  What he's said will be used against him and by default against the Democratic Party if he becomes DNC Chair and one of the spokespeople for the party.

    Perhaps you don't like the tone, but the essential point that Kos is making is very relevant.

    Ask not what your party can do for you, but what you can do for your party.--Newsie

      No, he didn't. Frost ran against himself in a sense by running so Republican, and you can't have it both ways. Even though Frost sold out his Democratic soul by embracing Bush et al, Sessions still beat him up with Frost's "liberal Democratic high taxing" record. There was no way to have it both ways. Frost was a total embarrassment to this Texas Democrat with that campaign.

      We'll never know what would have happened if Frost had run a straight-up Democratic campaign. There's every likelihood he would have lost anyway. That was pretty much inevitable the moment Tom DeLay redistricted Texas. But Frost made, in my judgment, a step away from the Democratic party and he can't take that back.

      He wanted to keep an office so badly that he basically sold out. And then lost anyway. And rightly so. Nobody can trust a turncoat like that. He doesn't deserve office.

      Martin Frost is done and he has nobody to blame but himself.
