The Obama administration is pretty hard on feet these days -- either putting them in mouths or just shooting them. Latest example: AG Holder's declaration that the feds will "vigorously" enforce federal laws against marijuana possession and use, even if California legalizes same.
Let's see, now. What big state has hard-fought races for Senator and Governor, this election cycle?
And how important will GOTV be for the parties in those races?
And what issue might bring otherwise-apolitical, but Democrat-leaning, voters to the polls?
Just how much sense does it make to discourage those potential voters by claiming that even if they show up to vote for pot legalization, it won't make as much difference as they're hoping?
