The Dekalb Young Democrats and Atlanta Public Affairs both have noticed Georgia State Senator Curt Thompson's great piece in the AJC yesterday about why Democrats continue to lose the biggest statewide races. It all boils down to the fact that we're not offering voters an "investment" in the betterment of their lives.
I let Curt recruit me to phone bank (I HATE phone banking) this summer for the Cathy Cox campaign. This is a testament to both his persuasiveness and the respect that I have for him and his record. The man also has to be the most "plugged in" guy I've ever personally observed. His simultaneous use of his laptop, blackberry, and his cell phone left me startled. Check out his "virtual office" here.
If you haven't done so already, give his editorial a read as well as the excellent commentary I've linked for you.
