I'm sensing a pattern
All over the country, prominent Democrats are declining to run in races that could be potential Democratic pickups but aren't guaranteed to be easy wins (MyDD has the latest example). In other words, few top Democrats are willing to go the extra mile to win a seat for the party. Why? Could this be indicative of a general sense amongst these top Democrats that it just isn't worth it to go all out for these seats because they just don't feel like they are part of a team that will really get their backs?
We've often talked on these forums about how the party's unwillingness to support longshots has left a lot of local Democrats feeling isolated. Could the party's overall strategy also be leaving quite a few potential stars feeling like the fight just isn't worth the hastle?
