We should learn from Munchin

I think if McCaskill and Donelly voted for kavanaugh, they may have won tonight like Munchin who won in the trumpiest of places in the universe. 50 states strategy no matter what, say and do what you need to win. Incremental steps until those states become bluer.

4. I think voter suppression was a bigger factor in ND and GA -- and maybe elsewhere --

than votes re: Kavanaugh or anything else.

2. I don't. And there is a real ethical question here. If you know someone is ill-suited

for the SC and you vote for him or her anyway just so you can get or keep one particular job, there is a name for that kind of transaction.

5. non deciding votes are useful for strategic purposes

democrats should understand that that those votes are needed to get votes from dummies who occupy too much of those states.

3. No.

Bredesen supported Kavanaugh how'd that work out for him?

10. He was running for the senate

His position on the subject was well publicized and controversial... how is that significantly different?

9. As soon as Beto said what he did about the NFL players not standing I knew we lost

Sometimes you just have to dodge the question or (dare I say it?) lie to win in a very red state like Texas. He also said he wouldn't vote for Kavanaugh.
