    losses that could have been won had better primary candidates gotten party support. (Even hidden support where open primary support is not allowed.) Another reason for public campaign funding.

    I also think when we trash and ridicule Dem politicians without grounds, it discourages really good potential candidates from running.

    Having older, powerful incumbents can become a liability rather than an advantage when it comes to getting fresher blood in DC.
