17. Our voters are increasingly concentrated in fewer areas

while theirs are spread out in more districts and states.

And at some point our national party seems to have given up competing in many local and state elections so there are fewer efforts to recruit and develop good candidates at lower levels who know their local constituents and issues to run for higher office.

Dean was right about the 50 state strategy. We need to compete everywhere and grow good candidates from scratch over time. Dean's DNC leadership got us both houses in 2006 and the white house in 2008. We've done it before. We can do it again.

And also combat voter suppression and gerrymandering at the local/state level.
