View Diary: SCOTUS: Actually, We've Already Won (350 comments)

  •  There was no possibility of winning (4.00)
    Every possibility, including this one, would have been a loss.  We had no choice but to lose, and this choice, cast as a win, is delusional thinking.  Mark my words, Roberts is a disaster for us.

    First things first, but not necessarily in that order.

    •  Someone like Gonsalez was definitely a possibility (none)
      THat would have been a win.
    •  i like the front page comment (none)
      that indicates you use it to your advantage for future battles. Use it as a way to define your party and create a positive identity that resonates. Look at the actual nomination battle as a strategic retreat that sets you up for the near future in a larger war, and then it doesn't seem so horrible.

      I understand your point that the raw impact of how Roberts may influence the court is not a victory, and could be quite horrible. But that doesn't mean that we can't make the most of it.

      All extremists are irrational and should be exposed
