Some of you know I worked pretty hard on a local State House race in 2006, and in the process I learned a ton about what it means to elect Democrats at the state level. It's a hard battle, but one that has kept our state from being as bad as our famously-awful neighbors to the South.
Worst of all: it will never be blue in Tennessee again. Republicans will have the power to redistrict in 2010. We have a LOT of work to do in Tennessee in the weeks, months and years ahead.

It looks like things didn't go so well here in Tennessee, but the details will be sorted out in the days ahead. In the meantime, I'm planning to celebrate for a good week or two... and start trying to find me some tickets to DC on Jan. 20!

I'm a bit of a poker player in my spare time these days, and it feel like Obama is the massive chip leader heads-up against McCain. For McCain to pull it off, he'll have to go all-in not once or twice, but many times, just to get the point where he could even put Obama on the defensive. To stretch this further, the blinds are going up, antes are higher, and this thing is just about done.
(Wow, I hope I don't read this later and wince.)

Oh, and on politics... I really like the way this is looking. Not to jinx, just throwing it out there.

In the end, campaigns are about organization, and we need to have as many local bloggers represented as possible. It's just that simple.
Anyway, enjoy what will surely be good news and good blogging from R. Neal as the convention gets underway.

But there's a line between toughening up your opponent as you head toward the general election and just softening up his gut for an easy knockout. I felt the Clinton campaign got unnecessarily dirty and cheap and, frankly, evil toward the end. It's the burned bridges with her supporters I most fear.
In the end, we'll need Democratic votes to take the states we need to take. I hope that Clinton hasn't been so dirty as to muck up her supporters' party allegiance.
