  •  This is less about their agreeing with Dems (1+ / 0-)

    than about their adopting Dem frames about economic fairness and the moral and practical limits of the free market. And even then, they're doing it out of political fear and expediency, and not because they actually agree with these frames.

    One can also only hope that they're not fully aware of why they're doing this, and are acting out of Pavlovian instincts, and not political shrewdness.

    In any case, this is a good thing. They're acting now as Dems acted 30 years ago, shifting slowly to the left because it's where the country is going.
