12. This isn't campaign strategy, this is tactics
Edited on Mon Mar-14-05 01:49 PM by jpgray
I wholly disagree with the direction the party went in 2002. Tailor fucking made for a loss, because we did indeed simply look like half-hearted Republicans to the electorate. But tactically, whatever strategy we have, it's better in my view to keep some undesirables and have the filibuster when we most desperately need it. You can still carry that plan out with a much more aggressive campaign strategy--the "moderate" congressperson can therefore focus more on Bush's failures and where they disagree, for example, than on a hug they shared one day in perfect bipartisan unity.
