Here at WesternDemocrat.com, we're excited to announce that we've merged with Win The West, a blog started after the election by Emmett O'Connell. All of Emmett's posts over at WTW have been ported over here, your one-stop resource for the effort to turn the Democratic Party to the West.
Your Personal Note:
Awesome, now I can comment on Emmett's posts without registering with Blogger.
Good call and thanks for the links.

I have been scanning many of the web-blogs for critiques of Colorado Dem efforts. I must say that we are a cynical bunch! As someone who has had success running campaigns in Missouri, and now a new Coloradan (by way of DU law school), I am a little disheartened.
In my opinion, if we feel that our candidates, or their campaigns, are not living up to the expectations that we put on them as members of their party, then we have to find ways of furthering the debate.
* start blogs that talk about issues that have to be addressed in the campaign -- site academia
* write letters to all media; let them know that fair coverage is their only option
* organize neighborhood meet-ups; decide on what areas of your neighborhood would be good for voter-registration drives (for dems, of course). Try bus stops, educational venues, etc. Keep good notes on whom you talk to, and turn over copies to candidates…
* Organize candidate-specific, issue Political Action Committees (or social organizations), such as “Military Wives for Bridges”, “Fitz-Gerald Fair Tax Policies”, etc. -- you choose what political action that you are going to take.
* Volunteer to work routes for groups like ACORN, Sierra Club, labor, whomever you feel makes a good difference in your community…
The beauty of suggestions like these, is that they do not all take a lot of time out of your schedule. With enough people, you can register hundreds of new voters in a single Saturday.
Any other good suggestions? Please, let all your FRIENDS know.
