  •  O'Connor - A Lesson for Dems; Why We Must Start Wi (none)
    Rethugs learned in the early 80's that the desire to win should always trump the desire for ideological purity.  Ideological concerns will be addressed secondarily if political victory is achieved.  Without victory, ideological concerns are completely lost.
    The O'Connor retirement represents the perfect validation of the philosophy of winning.  This is self evident - no analysis needed here.  We are about to pay a huge price for not winning the political fight over the past 25 years.
    Dems need to learn that political parties are about winning... at any cost.  We need to stop whining and complaining about the less than ethical political practices used by the Rethugs.  We need to stop sabotaging our own candidates.  We need to embrace and welcome into the party as many people from as many different political and cultural backgrounds as possible.
    For Christ sakes, we need to start winning
