11. I don't think its about center vs left, its more about winning the PR war

No matter what the policy positions are, any Dem will be painted to the left of lenin by the republicans.

Its important to inspire enough voters to come out and vote for our candidates. Some of the more extreme radicals in both parties manage to win by spending extraordinary amounts of time listening to their constituents and earning votes one at a time. Big money wins the TV ad war. But can only do so much with real people's hearts and minds. Old fashioned door to door campaigning still works in much of America.

After watching Ann Richards' documentary on HBO, I really want the Dems to be a 50 state party again and win in states like Texas as well as retaking more liberal places we should win like Maine and Wisconsin.
