    We have won the popular vote in five of the last six elections.

    only gerrymandering keeps us from controlling the House of Representatives.

    but I agree we need to focus on building strong liberal institutions.

    Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.
    Drop by The Grieving Room on Monday nights for support in dealing with grief.

      Cutting through the gerrymandering will take a monumental effort.  I think it's possible but we have to register alot more people and turn out a much higher percentage of the vote.  Right now, as I am sure you know, the GOP have taken actions to prevent that from occurring.  That is why we need to counter them with strong liberal institutions.
