Make Them ALL Work For It
Make Him Work For It
I'm generally of the opinion that it's great to have anyone as a Democrat who will caucus with the party and support its candidates. . . .This has mainly informed my opinion about Arlen Specter . . . I guess my thought on this [is] it'd be nice to see him have to make some case to the Democrats in his state that he's worthy of their nomination . . .
My thought on this is EVERY POL should have to make the case that they should be the Democratic standardbearer for the post they seek - from Obama on down. Pols are not your friend. They are not the star players for your favorite sports team. They do what they do. They use you and we should use them -- to promote the issues you care about. I have always believed this. And I owe this thought to Markos Moulitsas, who first put it in my head. I wish he would return to his roots (Netroots pun intended) on this. To my mind, his work from 2002 on regarding that subject was his most important. I hope he returns to it.
Speaking for me only
