590. I agree with you to some extent and appreciate what she's done.

But for a cause that is so universally important--even to honest Republicans--I am disappointed about missed, crucial opportunities for this historic moment in time. The Oberman thing is a big PR blunder, and dissing DU and its constructive criticism is a mistake that we can't afford right now.

To be fair, Bev has had to be cautious of spies and sabateurs and even her own safety, so her guarded approach to trusting "helpers" is understandable. She clearly needs to hire the right people to help with this. But I worry that she has lost the ability to recognize supports and accept help--necessary elements of taking this to the next level. "Me against the world" isn't getting it done.

She went into this like a child star who stumbled onto a radio hit, and needs a new manager now that she is on the big stage. The Game is now On. Unfortunately, her weakness is in not recognizing and using constructive resources available to her.

And we are losing in the most important court...the court of public opinion.
