How the West Can Be Won

In case you missed it, check out this gem in today's LA Times. Sen. Ken Salazar (D-CO) talks about his own experience getting elected in Colorado, and explains how Democrats win in the interior West (meaning the land between the Great Plains & the Pacific Coast states). It's a fascinating read.

Even though I'm one of those "Left Coast Californication Hippie Freaks", I understand that Democrats like Ken Salazar & Jon Tester don't campaign in the same way that Barbara Boxer & Patty Murray do. While environmental & natural resource issues and are also HUGE inland, one has to pursue this & other issues in a different way. But when Democrats get the "Western Mentality", Democrats win there just like they win here in The Golden State.

So anyways, take a look here & tell me what you think about winning The West.
