Eleanor and Franklin ... Bookends

eleanor roosevelt actually once said something worth remembering, "No one can make you feel inferior without your permission"

something similar applies to democrats and liberals this year. they have been conditioned by experience to expect disappointment. and that conditioning is now the greatest (if not only) weapon the GOP has in the next 9 weeks.

with the combination of candidates, issues, polls, primary votes, voter registration, voter id, fund-raising, etc. the only thing the Democrats have to fear is, ironically ... fear itself.

"not this time", "yes, we can", and "if it's not close, they can't steal it" ... only you can make it so. but also always remember, "cakewalks" are fairy-tales.  (ask W, Cheney, Hillary, etc.)
