15. well we won big in 2006

which is more than can be said for 2004.

However, Republicans took control of the state legislators in the 2010 elections which were not just bad at the House level.

But blaming things on redistricting seems kinda lame to me. It says that Democrats do not have a message, or candidates, who will be able to reach voters. To get such a message and to get such candidates seems more vital, more real than just changing the districts. Screw that, let's go into the conservative districts and kick their useless a$$es!!

Instead of always looking, like Kansas does, for a rich person to run as a Democrat so we can raise the big bucks, let's win with small dollars and great messaging. Find a Russ Feingold, the underdog who won the US Senate race in Wisconsin against an incumbent Senator

"Feingold's senatorial career began in 1992, with a victory over incumbent Republican Senator Bob Kasten. Feingold, who had little name recognition in the state and was campaigning in a primary against a pair of millionaire opponents Congressman Jim Moody and businessman Joe Checota" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russ_Feingold#1992_U.S._Senate

Find a George McGovern, or a Stephanie Herseth, who can win in a red state like South Dakota.

Don't tell me we cannot win because there are too many conservatives in a district. Represent the bottom 80% and win a majority of their votes, conservative, moderate, or liberal.
