Response to Hortensis (Reply #78)

109. Glad that she won, but any Dem could have won there with a strong campaign.

 

We won't build a Democratic wave in '18 if we restrict nominations in winnable seats to moderates-limiting it to moderates means reducing the whole campaign to "it's enough to stop T___p". Voters won't elect us just to stop him. We need to be for change that affects their lives in a positive and perceivable way.

We can't just restrict progressive candidates to state legislative seats, for cryin' out loud-we can't ONLY nominate progressives in races that don't matter. And there's no reason to assume the voters want us to do that.

Why couldn't you leave it at just praising Karla's win?

BTW, if your first line in that post was meant as some sort of a swipe at me, It was uncalled for. I don't post out of some pathetic desire for personal attention, my OP did no harm, and my presence on this board is just as legitimate as yours is.

MY OP called out Gillibrand for her motivations. Why would that bother you?
