I've always agreed with Howard Dean's fifty state strategy where as head of the DNC he felt we should try to get Democrats elected in every district in every part of the country and not to let any races go unchallenged. I never agreed with Rahmbo's strategy that the way to win in conservative districts is to run Democrats who should have an R behind their name instead of trying to get good progressive candidates elected to those seats. And here's one reason why. All they do is undermine the party and give the talking heads over at ClusterFox a reason to mock progressives like they're doing here. Thanks Rahm.
