  •  Ah, handwringing, the Democrats' (0+ / 0-)

    favorite Olympic sport.

    We are the majority. Our majority is growing. We are coming out from the shadow of fear cast by Republican anti-Communism and Red-baiting for a century, and the Southern Strategy for fifty years.

    There is a funny thing about tipping points. Nothing seems to happen until you reach one, and then it all starts to happen at once. As we see with LGBT rights, where Joe Biden was the highest-profile "evolver" until Obama was, and since then we have had a dozen Senators (two of them Republicans!) and both Clintons announcing their own evolutions. Even on Fox, Bill O'Reilly is now for gay marriage.

    Why, here in Indiana, our Blue Dog Sen. Joe Donnelly has evolved on LGBT rights and gun safety both! If we can get him to move on a Woman's Right to Choose, we might make a real Democrat of him yet.
