Read this… October 4, 2006

….Newsweek article. I actually found it to be a rather middle-of-the-road piece about the battle for the House this November.

I’m sure some of you are wondering how Newsweek (most would say it’s part of the liberal media) could publish such a piece, but it really is a good read.  I would suggest reading it if you’re interested in the House races specifically or just political workings in general.

Here are some of my favorite quotes/snippets from the article:

As has been the case since Bill Clinton left town, the Republicans have the organizational and financial advantage.

Only in the Democratic Party would campaign officials need to sign a written peace treaty, which Dean and Emanuel did last week.

He has carefully studied the GOP’s expensive, cutting-edge voter “outreach” program. Using huge databases, it connects like-minded people by using market research to develop profiles of their interests and concerns. The aim is to re-create an over-the-back-fence digital/personal endorsement.

“People are really beginning to understand that the House is really competitive and Democrats have a real chance to win,” says Ickes.

Let me know what you think…
