To SUMMERS and others who find yourself agreeing with him/her: Just take a look at the Democratic party.

These analyses [of the "expand the map" strategy] make sense, but only within the context of the campaign truly believing that they were safe in other crucial must-have states -- a cataclysmically wrong assumption.
