The Kos crowd definitely earned some crowing rights last night with the Lamont win, but the summation of this triumphal post was interesting:
“What tonight showed is that democracy can work. That even the most powerful, entrenched forces can be dislodged by people-power.”
This is sort of the Dean Democracy for America premise: The whole American political culture is corrupt, except when we win. America’s democracy is ailing and faded, except when we win. Self-funded wealthy candidates are the bane of politics, except when they’re our guys.
Kudos to Lamont for fighting an absurdly uphill battle and coming out on the other side victorious. It’s an impressive feat, aided, no doubt, by Lieberman’s promise to run as an independent and the lack of party loyalty it suggested, but neither he nor Kos fixed democracy last night. Why isn’t winning a tough primary enough?
ALSO: Let’s hear it for Tabin election night coverage. It’s always great and last night was no exception.
