Keith is absolutely right. There is obvious low-hanging fruit on the Democratic side, especially at the State Legislature level. For those people who will never believe in the Democratic Party, then at least try and get involved in city-level politics, where the races are typically nonpartisan. The Party is just a vehicle. Everything is cyclical in American Politics. The Blue Dogs will come into vogue again. 2014 is not projected to be a great Democratic year, but it could be depending on where you happen to be. The top of the GOP hierarchy is highly corrupt. Could the Democratic Party be much worse? Would the Democrats have banned delegates from their convention?
