You gotta love the First Amendment. You can say any BS, and others can respond.
In 2008, we went with the ‘safe’, Establishment, candidate and not only got Obama, we got a Democrat filibuster-proof Senate and a huge Democrat majority in the House.
Nominating a candidate that puts the base to sleep does not help ONE BIT when it comes to Congress.

Yep. And I never saw the Dems fretting in 2008 about losing the House and Senate because they were running somebody that appealed much more to their base than a "safer", "more centrist" (relative term, of course) like Hillary Clinton. Nope, they charged ahead and won everything.
We, of course, have a bunch of Trojan Horse (former?) Democrats as pundits and pseudocons stabbing Conservatives in the back, and that's a big part of the difference.
