    I think the electorate will be more left of center than right of center
    We've gotten so used to losing on the left that we've forgotten how to win, and in democratic politics there is and has always been only one way to do that, political pressure. If we can leverage the increasingly left-leaning tendencies of voters to pressure centrists and Repubs, then that's the ballgame. They can keep their valued spots on MTP and Morning Shmoe so long as on policy, they yield.

    Every far-right nutjob they nominate in the GOP makes it easier for us to elect a Dem. Every centrist Dem who votes with Repubs becomes more primariable. The politics of the nation are shifting our way. We just need to know how to exploit it.

    The Reagan era is over.
