We are gonna loose.
OK I will expand due to my respect for MyDD's "no one line diaries policy."
Basically, the Dems in DC don't want to make hay out of things that will satisfy the base (ie. Censure, etc.) because this will only paint local candidates as crazy lefties.
Apparently, lots of the local candidates don't want the DC dems to do crazy lefty things because they fear being painted as crazy lefties and then they will loose.
However, they are also concerned about turnout. And you can't get turnout without getting the base fired up. And you can't get the base fired up without throwing them some nice red meat once in a while.
Sounds like a catch 22. Right?
Wrong. Because no matter what any DC or local Dem does, the Repugnican counterpart will in fact call them a crazy lefty Michael Moore lover.
So, by not gathering together in DC for things that are important to the base, like Republicans do. They will drastically affect their turnout, which in turn will help them loose the election.
