    bottom up strategy is that many such efforts at "better" Dems are being blocked and destroyed by the conservative Party establishment (see Lieberman, Louisiana senate, dissing of Dean, Kuttner, Krugman, etc., in 2009, etc.). Their heavy-handedness with the left of the Party, from the very beginning with hippy-puncher Rahm and Geithner/Summers, etc., etc., shows that they are outright hostile to the liberal and/or left wing of the Party. That said, we have to try to "make him" change if we are to have any hope of altering the neoliberal, foreign policy- and security state hawk Dem in the WH -- which worked with DADT and DOMA, and might work here.

    So it's a multiprong effort. Work from the grassroots, but fight like hell to get the top officials in Washington and the state houses to at LEAST not deliberately undermine efforts to elect better politicians.
