    What percentage of elected Democrats in the last thirty years would you consider "dlc-dem" or "corpodem" or "schmuck" vs. "True Scotsman," or whatever it is you call "real Democrats?"

    Too Folk For You. - Schmidting in the Punch Bowl - verb - Committing an unexpected and underhanded political act intended to "spoil the party."

      i like kucinich, though he had his flaws and keith ellison, raul grijalva, barbara lee.  i liked howard dean, even though i frequently disagreed with him on important issues, i always felt that his heart was in the right place and that he was the sort of person who would actually engage with the public.

      anyway, if i racked my brains i could come up with a list of modern democrats that acted like democrats going back to george mcgovern.  they would all have flaws that i could point out, but they would all generally speaking have certain traits evident that most folks would agree, define them as democrats.

      i'm part of the 99% - america's largest minority
