More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    We all differ in ways that matter. But we're all the same in the ways that matter most.

    I live in TN-04 and will hold my nose to vote for Lincoln Davis. It has been a particularly nasty race. And will say a prayer for Roy Herron, also a nasty race. And for Brett Carter; I have not seen any ads for him (or at least I haven't noticed them). Diane Black's ads are all over the TV, but at least they are not negative in the least so she must not be worried at all.

    •  Yeah, haven't seen any Carter ads, but (1+ / 0-)

      I don't watch much broadcast TV.
      Black has been running against
      (as most Rs everywhere are)
      Pelosi and Obama in her ads.

      I voted for McWherter, Carter, and
      Kent Coleman for state rep last Thursday,
      and was surprised to discover an amendment
      to the states constitution concerning hunting
      and fishing? I thought I was reasonably informed.
      Guess I need to dig a little deeper on the local level.

      Apparently, this is an example of R GOTV
      rally the base strategy that has appeared
      on the ballot in other R+ states. So the Ds are
      not the only party with an enthusiasm gap?

      Thanks for all of your efforts.
