    tea party obstructionists accountable, and vote them out in 2014.

    We can't just leave this to our default level of political process, but need some dedicated full time think-tanks, grass-roots orgs, or some boost to our 2014 and 2016 electoral strategy.

    I've been encouraged by the occasional post by the OFA folks that they might try to maintain their momentum and organization in a more grass roots interim until we start setting up campaign offices again.

    Yesterday President Obama asked Chairwomen Debbie Wasserman  Schultz to head the DNC again, and I'm thinking of writing her a letter with some suggestions that we amp up a more progressive and more proactive focus where we perhaps get the superior voter management software we used and get it into volunteers hands so they can use it at home.

    We may have an opportunity to amp up our operations here by incorporating features of the database and software organization into a DK version 6 software upgrade.

    Then as volunteers if we wanted to make a few highly focused, high leverege, phone calls on a spontaneous whim, we could pull down the "Activism" menu to the right of "Dairies" and click on "Daily Phone Targets" for Issue X, and it would have the phone number, suggested pitch, and note field, so we could also see notes previous Kossacks leave about their calls or intelligence findings.
