You don’t want to hear this, right now. You just ran a race, it drained you and you lost. Likely, you want to ball up in a corner and stew in your own juices. I get it, but have to beg you not to. We need you! The “cause” needs you. What cause? The one you told us you were all about, when you were campaigning. That one.
Look. I realize I’m disregarding that “kicked in the gut” feeling you probably have. But honestly, those of us still volunteering and campaigning, can’t be bothered with that. Not until November 7th, anyways. You, the former candidate, have proven assets that you alone can fully mobilize to the betterment of the cause.
Personally, I’d like you to walk your campaign over to the Field Director and Political Director of the Elizabeth Warren Campaign. But, I’m being ballsy enough by bugging you, as it is. Pick a campaign. Go to NH, if you think OFA is worth an ounce of sweat.
Please, and I do mean PLEASE, do something with the campaign you built. Walk it over to another campaign, ASAP. I can’t help but believe, if you meant the things you told us, you could simply take your ball and go home.
No one, I’d bet, would blame you, if you did. But, everyone would respect the hell out of you, if you didn’t.
Take a day or two. Lick the wounds. Dab on the salve. Then, put all you shit in one bag and bring it home. This time, we must leave it all in the street.
PS. Some odd glitch in the software allows me to comment on other’s diaries, but not my own. So, I will thank you for picking this thread up and discussing it, in this edit.
