    I think we'll have another Dem in the WH mainly because of demographics, and a more lefty one for the same reason.  It's not that I expect a more ideological 'purity' of any sort, simply that I think the country is still rebounding leftward, and it will be more politically expedient to be more to the left for pure political personal gain.  They won't claim to be to the left, but things the left likes are simply polling far too well to be against them.  Hence Hillary Clinton's sudden proclamation on gay marriage.  Expect more Dems to 'lean left' on similar issues, simply to try to suck up to more of the younger electorate, not because they actually want to be more liberal.
