    After this massive betrayal by the Democratic leadership, they will hate the Democrats even more, because in addition to selling them and the most vulnerable Americans out in the most egregious manner,  they were duplicitous about their intentions - unlike the Republicans, who don't pretend to stand for the little guy.

    "It depends what the meaning of 'is', is"
    Platform of the "New" Neoliberal Democratic Party
    Speaking out of one side of their mouth for the little guy, their nominal constituency, and the other for the plutocracy, their real constituency.

      The American people are politically illiterate. They will start thinking about the election the day before. Then they will ask "which one is Obama, a Democrat or a Republican?", then they will vote. The level of "analysis" on the part of the typical American will come down to, as usual, which candidate they want to have a beer with. And that will be Obama!

      I'm in the I-fucking-love-this-guy wing of the Democratic Party!
