50 State Strategy: Back to Square One?

Discussions ensue on the reported layoffs at the DNC of embedded state organizers and on the future of Dean's successful strategy.

The biggest question for me is not just the future of the program and how it relates to state parties, but also how the organizational juggernaut built by the Obama team will play into the future of state party organizations.

We haven't seen as large a return on the investment (as Kilgore puts it in the article) here in Utah, but one cannot (thought many are trying to) make the case it played a marginal role in Obama's election, and the success of Democrats on the national scene without sounding largely out of touch.
