    It would be interesting to determine if gun control issues were operative in the election. More research than just spouting cliches. Was the hold your nose and vote for Trump vote real? Can lower level Democratic state reps and congress people be influenced to break with the party line in toss up states>

    Such questions cannot be examined if the 'leadership' is still into just Trumpism.
    Iím more worried if the leadership is still into expensive bespoke suits and nepotism. The Dems arenít blue dog Dem friendly anymore.

    A 34% decline in membership is pretty catastrophic, especially given the election and the situation in Georgia. Hopefully that will galvanize some internal changes...

    Maybe doubling down to be sure no ďoutsidersĒ get on the board?

    As far as I see, that doesn't touch on the other actions between NYS and the NRA.
    Everything is easy when somebody else has to do it.

    Indeed, the point of spending a million dollars a day on the Brewer organization seems to have little to do with quality of representation or the results obtained, or really anything the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct have to say about the reasonableness of fees. It looks more like a Brewster's Millions kind of situation.

    Nope...I need West running for governor in Tx....then moving to President. Although it'd be cool to have him to both...
