11. In red areas, we need to run white women.

I've said this before, and I am well-prepared to withstand criticism on this subject, but the Republican gerrymandering of 2010 left a lot of Republicans vulnerable to a 5 point swing in popular opinion regarding who should control Congress. White women can win these seats.

Racism is real, and pretending it doesn't exist is folly. Feminism is also real, and pretending it does not exist is also folly. For the red states and the red areas of those states, in particular, white women have the best chance of winning as Democrats, because they peel white women away from their Repbulican-voting husbands and families. There's only one white male left in Congress who's a Democrat from the Deep South, and that's Georgia's John Barrow. In the red districts of the Deep South (and elsewhere), white, male Democrats are nearly extinct. In those same districts, I contend, a white female Democrat can win.

Flame-retardant suit on. Have at it.
