If I quote you on Obsidian Wings, do you want to be linked back here? If not, what moniker would you like?

Yes, this, all of this.

eta: In addition to the Bernie supporters not knowing enough about the downticket but major races, there's a particular problem in NC with ignoring the state-level races.

North Carolina is one of the most gerrymandered of states. Gerrymandering by Republican-led states makes it almost impossible for Democrats to get a House majority, even when they get a majority of the votes.

To get anything progressive (or even just non-Republican) *done* on a national level will take a 3-pronged approach:

1. the Presidency, where overall policy and judges come from
2. the Senate, which *is* flippable with party co-ordination
3. reduce gerrymandering to have a shot at the House

AFAIK the Bernie Revolutionaries aren't even thinking about #2 and #3. Without them, there *is* no Revolution.
