Political Donations
We're at the end of the quarter. If you're in a position to help out candidates with a little green, or if like me you just can't help yourself, this is the time to do it. So , where spend your money? For me, I'd like to think about re-taking the Senate. That means throwing a little money Harold Ford's way here in Tennessee. Or if you're excited by the thought of a resurgent Democratic Party in the West, maybe you'll want to look at Montana's Jon Tester, who got a glowing report from Kos yesterday for his debate performance. Or take a chance on defeating Lincoln Chafee in Rhode Island, whose worst vote is the one he casts for Republican Senate leadership.

What I wouldn't do personally is spend any money on defeating Lieberman in the primary, as crappy as he can be. His loss would do nothing toward regaining control of the Senate and controlling the agenda. It would make us feel good...and so I'll be rooting against him, and that's about it.

If you want to support the longer term 50-state organizational strategy of Howard Dean, you may want to give to the DNC.
