I disgree that the At-Large has no effect.  I think the fact that we
have PICs at all is largely due to At-Large.  But for things to have
community level pressure it takes getting alliances and perseverance. 
And yeah there is compromise.  But at-large when it focuses on a goal
and carries through.
