Helping Democrats put election puzzle together

Re "Meet the Powers Behind the Democrats' Strategy," July 5

Your article about the two men (Sen. Charles Schumer of New York and Rep. Rahm Emanuel of Illinois) assigned to help more Democrats win election gives me a spark of optimism.

I have been dismayed of late at the Democrats' lack of intestinal fortitude and inability to prepare for and defend against the aggressive tactics of the Republicans.

It feels as if the Democrats have not read the text for the classes Gingrich 101 and Dirty Tricks 101, which, if nothing else, could prepare them for the upcoming elections. I think these two men are a step in the right direction.
