    way. How did we end up with this version of the Democratic Party?  It reminds me of the Bette Davis movie where one twin drowns in a rowboat and the other twin takes over her life, only in that movie the bad twin dies and the good twin survived and that doesn't seem to be the scenario with the Democratic Party - the good twin died and the bad one took over.

    The Democrats have been lucky that the Republicans have morphed into Tea Party lunatics since it means their own transformation into the DLC Third Way Fix the Debt What Used to Be Republicans gets masked.

    If the Republicans ever succeed in running a non Tea Party endorsed candidate again, like Chris Christie, the average voter will be hard pressed to find the real points of differentiation plus they will be blaming Democrats for 8 years of Recession. The result of Democrats turning their backs on the 99% will be the re-animation of the Republican Party, prematurely declared dead in our current situation. What would avoid this? Democrats deciding to act like Democrats.
