    You and I both know that Castle's recent tilt to the right may be what might (read: might) save us in this seat.

    I think Beau Biden could have beaten Castle. Kaufmann could too had he decided to run. I admit I don't know anything about the current Dem in the race. With lack of info, I must defer to conventional wisdom, no matter how bullshit it is.

    And I'd love to be proven wrong on Indiana. Ellsworth would be a pretty good fit for the state, but it's a matter of getting every possible Dem to the polls. Not an easy task in an off-year.

      All he ever did was post to the effect that "We can't win anything! We're DOOOOOOOOOMED!" He worried that Bush would win Massachusetts.

      Even when he was right about things (in fairness, he was in Georgia at a time when Georgia was shedding Democrats like pattern baldness), it wasn't helpful for morale.

      Does victory look impossible? Tough shit; victory is our mission. The point is not to talk about how we're all going to fail. The point is to find and take a way that wins the impossible.

      The Right Wing wants to take America back. The left wing wants to take America forward. Any questions?
