Dems had it made in '08, so I hear. They should have taken full advantage then. They certainly had the numbers.
They, also, had the first black man in the WH.
A black president is becoming more acceptable as time passes, but it was anything but that back then, and Repubs were chomping at the bit to say, "See? We told you he'd go to far. We told you they'd go to far. What did you expect from radicals?" After all, who, but radicals, would have even condidered running him?
This is what the game was, and everybody knew it. So, the game was played out...carefully. It was the purpose of that time.
We came; we evaluated; we conquered.
Now, after surveying the field thoroughly, we are ready for the great battle. That is the purpose of this time.

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.

    are these diaries just a stream of consciousness type of thing or what?

    I don't mind, it's just that with three of them concurrently on the recent list, other diaries tend to get pushed down quicker.

    I'm all for encouraging people to write, so please don't take it the wrong way.

    Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.
