Until the Democrats grow a spine....
...the Republicans will keep on winning elections.

They haven't grown one just yet, and while the next president will be a Democrat (probably Hillary Clinton), they can't run on the unpopularity of the Republicans forever. The American people will quickly forget.

5. People like me helped on the ground
But unless they grow a spine, people like me won't help again.

2. Yeah. In fact, it would be best to lose this election
With someone who is seen as a radical figure, Clinton isn't, but she commands a radical aura in the general population. Although, having someone even more radical get nominated would be better. We will alwways be seen as only a party to elect people rather than to stand up for something and will always lose these close elections. We need to retool the party and lose MASSIVELY a few times and maybe we will have a calamity 10 times as worse as everything happening right now but in the end, we will emerge victorious.

3. yeah your concern is so refreshing....just like the 100 other
concern trolls, greens or any other group that says they have "concerns about the Dem chances in 08" even though most surveys show Dems probably be a landslide for the Dems

6. I am a lifelong Democrat, not a troll or a Green
and I am concerned about 2008. Just because the media seems to be putting out the message that the Dems are a sure thing doesn't mean that is what will happen.
