21. I don't have any answers; just questions....

I honestly don't know enough about large scale political campaigning to have a reliable opinion on the subject, so I guess that means I should ask some questions and learn something.

I like the sound of the '4000 county approach'; but I can also understand the pragmatic approach of using limited resources surgically to maximize benefit. Which leads me to my first question: Doesn't your relative campaign budget point you in one direction or the other? If your budget is large and consistent with that of your opponent, you go for the broad approach. If your opponent has more money than you, you have to get more creative and more precise. So, the DNC approach this year would seem to be predicated on the RNC ability to fund raise, right?
