  •  Daily hearings, featuring witnesses (7+ / 0-)

    The reason to have daily hearings is to concentrate media attention, and capture the media narrative.  It not only focuses potential swing voters, it energizes the base, and deprives the right of the tea party narrative's benefits.  It's a win-win, and it can be done with a fraction of the Senate's attention.  Republicans will cave relatively quickly, so it isn't an alternative to an actual strategy for the campaigns, but it won't hurt.  And, maybe the rest can get something done.
