11. Why would we want to? It's a terrible idea. If we want to shift the political dynamics in the US,
we can only do that by grassroots organizing: it won't happen from the top down, and it won't happen by us playing keyboard commando. A primary challenge to Obama will be nothing but a gift to the rightwing: we'll lose another four years wailing in the wilderness withy nothing to show for it
