Necessity is the mother of invention

Two interesting chats with other consultants in the last few days.

Consultant 1: "These emerging Democratic communities are surprisingly well organized in previously Republican areas."

Me: "It is the same reason the Young Republican's chapter at UC Berkeley is one of the most organized in the state.  Lack of options."


Consultant 2: "It is interesting that California campaigns are not more cutting-edge with all the money spent on them."

Me: "They are not more cutting-edge because there is so much money spent on them they don't have to be."
