I know that it is early, but RP has only attended Washington-Lee. I was hoping that he would have published a more pronounced schedule.
Anyway, we also need to keep those seats warm. It will be through education that the youth will stand with us and hopefully fill those seats. Once that is done, the chances of getting the boot will be slimmer. When the paradigm shift [as you rightfully call it] does occur, we will have the public support to maintain our positions :-)
