I get the Outsider vs Insider logic. But an insider will not motivate the base, the Moms and Pops of flyover country. Obviously, Outsiders can get elected. Whether they have staying power is more to your point. Electing an Insider won't bring the change that we here might hope for. An Insider, by definition, cannot get my vote (assuming I were to vote next time). I think that's the crux of the issue. In a world of 49/51 type splits as we see today, an Insider won't be on the 51 side for the R's. Possibly not an Outsider either. Never having been a staunch supporter of Conventional Wisdom, I remain jaded.

CW says the Dumbs are gonna get whupped, cuz, you know, off year election, blah, blah, blah. I still see too many Karens and Dominion lingers in my brain.
