4. Good for a few flips but I doubt it will do it this time
We have to concentrate on winning 2014, the House, Senate, state legislatures, governorships, etc.
We need a 50 state, EVERY ELECTION COUNTS strategy. If Democrats had won the 2010 election we would have been far better off now.
That largely depends on Barack Obama keeping faith with the voters who supported him and the leadership in the Senate making it very painful and difficult to filibuster and put holds on nominees and bills. Anyone who wants to hold up the Senate should be made to do what the Great Bernie Sanders did in his great filibuster. He had the support of other Senators for that. I am sure there are maybe even a handful of Republicans who would like to do more than obstruct. It wouldn't take any of them though they might like to break the McConnell strategy that has led them to the defeat they suffered this time.
I'm more than willing to support leadership that leads to making progress, I'd quit my work and go more than full time for someone like that. But they've got to lead and they have to do it now.
