Howard Speak You Listen

Let me get this out of the way first, I believe in the 50 State strategy. Creating field offices in every state will do more good than all the Beltway prima donnas combined. This will allow local people find and support local candidates that best reflect that community. Democrats need to win back state houses, senates, and govenorships by running politicians that reflect the community they represent.

Does anyone honestly believe that the Republican "Revolution" was an instantaneous affair akin to the virgin birth? If you do I have a quit-claim deed for a semi-used bridge that connects Brooklyn to Manhattan. Ok Dr Dean lays it out for ya here:

I want to write to you today about a problem. I talk a lot about the successes of our 50-state strategy and ways you can get involved. But today I want to talk very frankly about the obstacles we still face.

We have seen so much rapid progress in so many places (sweeping four special elections in Mississippi, flipping three state legislature seats in New Hampshire that had been Republican-held for nearly 100 years) that it's easy to forget that the 50-state strategy is a controversial plan.

It boils down to this: participation politics. We're building an entirely new kind of political party -- one where every single person matters as much as the next, where each one of us has the power to take our future into our own hands. It's a new way of operating, but we know it will work because we believe in the extraordinary potential of millions of Americans united in common cause to make our country better.

We are at a crucial moment in our party's history, and it's up to us to show that the 50-state strategy has the financial backing of ordinary Democrats across the country. But we're going to do it in a new way -- we're going to count the number of people donating on our web site, and reveal the amount at the end.

Will you stand up and be counted? We're aiming for 5,000 donations for a 50-state strategy. Make a donation to support a 50-state strategy now, and watch the number grow as Democrats across the country join you:
