    where you expect that party to the left of today's Democrats to come from?  Who would build it, how could it be built?  Why would today's Democratic leadership even tolerate theoretical discussion of such an entity, and who would provide the foot-soldiers to put it into place in the face of total hegemonic resistance?

      They are already building. The word "socialist" is no longer less popular than "lice" and many of us regard the current parties as corporate subsidiaries, so the armies await their generals. And "today's Democratic leadership" has no power to tolerate or to sanction left-flanking actions--but such actions will, in fact, benefit more centrist Dems.
