Re: “A Lesson for Progressives

Might be solid Hank, but a bit off topic.

The big money issue seems to cut both ways in this and many other elections. Cripes Hank, at what point do campaign donations transcend from broad support and confidence in the message to the wholesale purchase of the heart and soul of a candidate.

Seems like both sides of the ideological equation make the same arguments for a different set of reasons but, are similarly morally outraged when the other side engages in just about the same conduct.

As to John's theory, I think it is mostly persuasive. Like it or not, legit or not, Measure N was a defining and compelling focal point and a place where some efforts and (alas) candidates went to die.

But, beyond all of the political sophistication and postmortem analysis, doesn't it really come down to basic human levels of familiarity, comfort and confidence?

So John, I think your take is pretty close to right on. Maybe it would be more valid if it wasn't such a primer for 'progressive' future success but rather, a straight up evaluation of what worked and, what didn't.

I enjoy your writing here, before at the ER and on the Reporta blog. You have good insights. It's just that your cheerleader's pom poms don't quite completely cover your stripes.
