  •  You've just IDed the 2010 election debacle. (5+ / 0-)

    Democrats everywhere hunkered down, as if ACA was something we must avoid talking about. The Republicans came out swinging. Our Congresspeople didn't.

    Turnout was an issue. The young in particular do not tend to turn out in an off year election. Their votes might not have made that much difference (they didn't in most states in 2008) but their energy was missing in the 2010 campaigns. And the Obama vote-gathering team wasn't in place or cloned.

    That cannot be allowed to happen in 2014.

    2014 IS COMING. Build up the Senate. Win back the House : 17 seats. Plus!
