I've said it before and say it again. The Democrats need to hold big venue get out the vote

rallies with as many big names as possible.

The kind of rallies that get covered by national media.
Rallies that energize voters, rallies that focus on young voters, etc etc.

In terms of the national stage, It just feels quiet.

2. Maybe if we had given the midterm elections a highly visible effort, we wouldn't be

peddling so hard to catch up.

Good grief. We need to present a unified, national front.

3. Would love to see something big scheduled for Saturday 11/3.

At every big city and state capital not just DC.
Speeches by celebs, pols, and regular folk. Lots of music.
Everyone wear blue.
Sing songs with the words blue and wave in them. Make it fun.

5. Messaging is enormously important. National messaging, speaking with one voice is

critical at this time.

All f tRumps rallies are covered by national media, and take on importance that just does not exist.

It is simply not true that there are more of them than us.....but how would you know unless it is touted and on display??

7. That is just not true and Trump's rallies are not covered that much...we need a 50 state

solution like Dean had with candidates tailored to the state or district.

6. If Democrats are not wanting to vote ( I am) with Kavanaugh on the court and babies in cages...

among other ills, then nothing helps. Come on people we need to vote period every election and should not need to be cajoled into doing so. We are dealing with self inflicted wounds and no venue will help until Democrats demonstrate party loyalty and vote in every election.

9. they already do things like that. what is more imporant is people vote becsuse it's imporant

not because they need to be entertained.

why doesn't things like tearing kids from parents not affect them ?

11. Every bit of inspiration that can be given to encourage people to vote has a place in this process.

There is no one right answer.
We need everything.

Democrats are famous for not voting in the mid terms.
Democrats voted in very very small numbers in 2010, democrats staying away from the polls made room for the tea party.

I am sorry to say that people just don't vote.

I also disagree with those that say big huge rally's will not get the attention of the media. The media will absolutely cover a big rally even if it's just a short clip.
