We're pretty good at this at the presidential level.  And we had a very, very good night tonight.

But we have a lot of work to do.  We really are the good guys, and are fighting some really nefarious forces.  However, despite vote-stealing and suppression and a conservatively-owned media, we won.  This is because we have a functioning democracy, and because we can always engage the energy and the will to claim our democratic process.  This year showed that when we vote and care, we win change.

We have an incredibly difficult Senate Map in 2014, as well as an opportunity to reclaim the house and do things right.  The Republicans are in disarray, and out of touch, and anchored to an increasingly challenging demographic/ideological niche.  We need to drive a big, fat, populist truck through that.

We need to do this, so that we never - ever - have to worry about noecons, 1%er plutocrats, dogmatic evangelicals, or just plain crazy wingnuts hijacking our country and our future again.

This is not the end of a campaign, but the beginning.

Let's take back Texas, and Arizona, and Missouri, and any other place where blue-collar americans are going to do so much better if someone fights for them and their families.  Let's take back those state houses, governor's mansions, house seats, secretary of state offices.  Let's take back our country.

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.
