Political Strategy for a Permanent Democratic Majority

DCCC to Go for the Gusto

John Bresnahan has a Politico piece on a new funding strategy for Democratic congressional campaigns that should arch a few brows: Here’s the nut graph:

With a huge cash advantage over the National Republican Congressional Committee, Van Hollen and Emanuel are cautioning their colleagues that the DCCC wants to have money to put into 40 challenger races next year — and if these vulnerable Democrats are not facing serious races or any effort by the National Republican Congressional Committee to unseat them, the DCCC will spend its resources elsewhere.

It’s a bold move, and one which appears to be based on the confident assumption that a mega-victory in ’08 is in the making for Donkeys. May it prove to be so.
