  •  Kos, sorry, but you are wrong. (4.00)
    Obama isn't the future of our party. The future of our party lies in ensuring free and fair elections. Anything less, and you will not see a democrat in the white house for a very long time.

    Man is the measure of all things. Of things that are that they are; of things that are not, that they are not. - Protagoras (ca. 380 BC)

    •  The only way to do that is to win Governorships (none)
      ... and capture the position of Secretary of State or Election board supervisor (whatever the case may be) in more states.

      Those are critical goals.

    •  Fair elections don't cure a misinformed electorate (4.00)
      We would have lost a fair election, too. The corporate media and religious right combine to make an obstacle we cannot at present overcome. Most of my postings today have been more of the despair/hopeless type than the rage/action type, so I'll add some balance by suggesting there are two things we can do which would make it possible for America to recover in a decade or so:

      1. Destroy the corporate media
      2. Destroy the myths of the religious right

      Pat Buchanan is right in his analysis, gay marraige brought us down this time. The two villans were the corporate media and the religious right.

      So now, what can we do about that?

      (I'll expand on this in a diary soon.)
