Ferrel Guillory – political expert extraordinaire and director of the Program on Public Life at UNC-Chapel Hill – offers a good perspective to my question (see below) about coordinated campaigns.
 
He cites an article by two of his students about the 2004 coordinated campaign.
 
Ferrel notes: “As you know, Jim Hunt used to be criticized for running his own campaigns, not coordinating, sucking all of the oxygen (funding)….Now Easley and co. are being chastised for coordinating.”
 
After all, isn’t it better to have candidates linked to their political parties, and parties vigorous enough to build coalitions and hold candidates accountable?
