    of - "We have to run and elect Democrats so "centrist" that they can easily be confused with Republicans and we expect all Democrats to hold their noses and vote for them and endure their ersatz Republican regimes because isn't it better than having an actual Republican in office?"

    My answer to this is - not really. This is how Democrats are ruining and corrupting their own brand with longtime old school Democrats, something they just don't appear to understand.

    It's the Tin Man dilemma - when you constantly replace Democratic tenets and beliefs with Republican ones, simply in order to become elected, at what point are you simply a moderate Republican running as a Democrat? When did the Tin Man cease being human?

    It is verboten to give the voters any actual choice between 2 entirely different schools of thought and social philosophies because God forbid a Democrat openly act like what used to be a Democrat.

    And people wonder where the hope went? The hope disappeared from sight when it was put in a container and suffocated by a giant steaming pile of centrist, pseudo-Republican, 1% funded, self-serving politico CRAP.
