Morgan Carroll and Jeffrey Feldman made back to back posts on my Facebook feed today posing the same basic question:
What can Democrats do to win back people in Republican safe zones like the rural Upper Midwest and rural Colorado?
Both acknowledge that the current Democratic party's message isn't reaching people in these places and proceed with humility to figure out if there are ways that Democrats can improve their appeal in Red territory without contradicting their core values. These posts and more importantly, the comments they spawned are worth reading. This is Democratic soul searching at its most sincere.
