    ... voters have to demand that their officeholders and candidates do not succumb to the corruption endemic in the system.  If we do not object and fight corruption, we are complicit.  This is the basis for a lot of criticism of the administration and the Congressional party, because they are deeply corrupted by Wall Street and other big-money interests.  Accepting this by arguing "the other guys are worse, and ours are better enough" only fosters institutionalized corruption.  Democratic officeholders should feel a very hot flame on their backsides from the base, demanding better.
