When a party loses elections badly, as Democrats just did last week, it often becomes difficult to agree on a strategy for the future. And that’s certainly the case with the Democrats now,
As next week’s Washington, D.C. meeting of major liberal donors approaches, the contributors are split into two camps. One wants to match the Republican advertising success with outside interest groups in 2012.
The other camp maintains that Democrats don’t have enough resources to compete on that front and would be better off paying for a more permanent intellectual infrastructure rather than political advertising.
“The fact that the White House is sending a very big signal to all of the major donors that they should participate is a step in the right direction, but they still don’t get it,” says Erica Payne, a founder of the Democracy Alliance, sponsor of next week’s conference.
