Taking Back Congress

Chris Bowers of MyDD has the blueprint to do it. Bowers sets the goal for 2006 to target 80 GOP-held seats. Obviosly, we won't win all of them. Hell, we will be lucky -- very lucky -- to win 10 of them. Personally, I don't think this is as much about taking back congress in 2o06, because, in all likelihood, that won't happen until 2012 at the earliest (but that doesn't mean I won't bust my ass to make it happen in '06). What targeting so many races is about is building the party. That's what we got to do. We have to build it in every state, not just the swing states. We have to build it in Rhode Island the same way we build in Ohio and the same way we build it in Texas. If this sounds familiar, its a lot of what Howard Dean has been talking about in his quest for the DNC Chairmanship. I have supported him from the beginning, and continue to do so.

By the way, Sirius Radio is very good for liberals. I mean very good. It has Air America plus another station called Talk Left which features the likes of Ed Schultz, etc. And no ... I don't work for Sirius.
