Scuttlebutt in the office (some vague David Nir recollection) is that the Oregon initiative wasn't supported by activists and had no money or effort behind it.

Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 10:31 PM PT: Speaking of the office, having so many people here is pretty awesome -- Laura Clawson and David Nir from NYC, Meteor Blades from the other side of the Bay, Joan McCarter from Idaho, Hunter from Mendocino County, and Jen Brunjes from Kansas. They joined the Berkeley based crew of me, Susan Gardner, Kaili Joy Gray and the admin and development team.

It's not often there's more than a few us at the same place.

Wisconsin's two Senators now a gay progressive woman and male Ayn Rand acolyte. It's like being at UW-Madison again.

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.
