    won't bring the caucus together again but in a direction we find odious?

    I have no doubt that there are many Democrats that have been pushed out our party because of Obama's election. Anyway, the ones that 'have been pushed out' aren't in the House. The ones remaining are the least likely to abandon their world view. And they still have the upper hand there. We may say that we have a mandate because we won the Presidency but that doesn't mean the Republican House must roll over. I didn't expect Pelosi to do that in 2006 and I have no doubt that Cantor et. al. have no intention either.

      They'll keep discarding people for not being conservative enough, and thereby bring about their own collapse.

        to the fact that the conservative worldview is never going to die. We thought it died in the 60's with the thumping Goldwater got and the extensive Republican support for Civil Rights and Medicare.

        Boy, were we foolish then. Let's not be foolish again.
