    The election is February 23rd. I'm interviewing the current chair, Mark Brewer, this evening and the contender for his seat, Lon Johnson (husband of Julian Smoot of Obama campaign fundraising team fame) on Saturday for Eclectablog.

      seeing more good works, journalism and leadership from  Eclectablog....Press on!!

      You create things, ideas, activities, leadership concepts,
      tactical observations, good operational political tips, and
      saavy commentary while exercising citizenship involvement prosecuted in a manner rendering it focused and effective.

      Now if we could just create an Eclectablog transformation
      machine, or at least figure out a way of teaching Eclectablog's approach in an operational manner to the entire American left....now that would be a good thing to do.

      Why?

      Because Eclectablog in the prosecution of how you carry out what you do understands a most important rule .....  I call it the 'rule on making your case.'  

      A lot of the American left does not understand that the primary purpose of what they are and should be doing is one of 'making your case' in a most fundamental way.    

      In practice....what happens is that many groups-organizations-movements proceed with what I call a 'picture painting and product branding' strategy.   The problem is that practicing advocacy with a 'picture painting and product branding' strategy means you frequently de-focus attention away from one's own position in a manner to engage your opponent with negatives, but such de-focusing is counterproductive to
      actually "making your case."  

      "Making your case" and fundamental stewardship of your
      own individual and organizational leadership is Job One for effective advocates.....and don't forget that most important tool for political activity triage.....the need for Focus in design in operations, and the overwhelming need
      to Set Priorities, and the importance of credibility and stewardship philosophies in all of their forms.
