    government is to hand out big fat government to their own friends and supporters.

    Their meme of "limited government" has been proven wrong under GW Bush. They really only believe in "crony capitalism".

      what you can get from them, and what they can give you in return. In other words, it's the classical power game. Old as the hills. Democrats play it too, because most often it's the only game in town.

      Power is a combination of influence, money, and access. The ability to get things done. Ideology minus power will always be ignored, as being simply irrelevant. See, Dennis Kucinich.
