This is a good question. One answer is that lots
of voters are not registered Democrats, so you may
no be able to reach them in primaries. A second is
that by entering a primary, there is some obligation
to abide by the results and support the winner, and
the winner may be completely noxious from a
programmatic standpoint. Having said that, I
would like to see more left challenges in primaries.
>>Since we are on unanswered questions, I've continually raised the issue of
why leftists don't run serious candidates in Democratic primaries?
If Nader had run in the primaries, he could have gotten serious progressive
support and sent a far stronger message to the DLC.

Yeah, right..........name a leftist that didn't self-mutilate their stance
on tough issues as the DNC transferred the $$ to their campaign, or do you
think that cash still comes with no strings attached?
