  •  Extremists (4.00)
    If the Republicans lose their moderates, they will never control any branch ever again. So I say let them cannibalize their moderates.
    •  Of course that's what (none)
      a lot of conservatives say about the Dems, too, which is why they say Dean is bad for the party. I still like Dean as DNC chair and like how he is trying to get the DLCers to be not so GOP-lite. It remains to be seen, though, which party will lose (or gain) more by leaning on its moderates.
      •  True - Dean is a moderate, tho (none)
        in terms of policy. So he's likely to foster moderates who can win as candidates.

        The only thing that makes Dean seem extremist to Repubs is that he has a spine, uses it and doesn't back down...

        I really, really like what's going on with the Dems. I would have liked for not one single prejected nominee be nominated - but the GOP took a beating in the polls for weeks, Frist is foiled, this smokescreen for now is done, and on to - Social Security! Where the more the public hears about the plan, the less they like it.

        God bless Dean, Reid, Boxer, et al.

        •  Agreed (none)
          We can't succumb to using the right's definition of what a "left-wing extremist" is --- I mean, what they don't get is that 'liberal' and 'extremist' are not the same thing.  I mean, really.  We need to be putting some concerted effort into informing people how mainstream the Democratic party is and how far to the right the Republican theo/neocon leadership has taken theirs.

          Dean is not extreme.  He's just very committed to his principles.

          War is NOT a preventative measure.
