I agree with Ms. Parkers assesments of 'what the Repubs need to do'. BUT there is a reality to this assurtion. First, any presidential candidate has an automatic plus or minus. The Democrat has an automatic Electoral College vote of over 100. Calif, New York, Nev. Oregan, Washington were drop-dead Democrat and will be into the forseeabe future. The Dem person only needs a handful of states. While the Repub is the exact opposite. They need to 'overcome' that handicap by getting ALL the rest of the 'E.C.' votes. The Dems don't even advertise in these states whereas the Repubs just throw up their hands and don't 'waste time and money'. We need Conservatives that will press the gospel of Conservatism not party.
