    Will the Dems split.

    •  Seriously. There is no way. Dems do not split. (4+ / 0-)

      I am not sure why anyone thinks the Dems will split.  I think it's much more likely that the Republicans split.

      One part of the Republican party splits off to be "The Party Of Jesus", wildly spouting off for multiple Constitutional Amendments against gays, abortion, and atheism while simultaneously screaming at the top of their lungs that everyone who doesn't vote for their party will "burn in Hell" and "is a servant of Satan".    This branch will fare well in Alabama, Texas, Mississippi, Georgia and South Carolina.

      The second part of the Republican party splits off into "Corporations Uber Alles", who want to gut regulations and slam corporate taxes down to 0%.   The branch will fare poorly with the general public but will capture almost all of the Republican wealthy donor base.

      The third part of the Republican party splits off into strict Libertarianism and isolationism.   This branch will appear to non-college educated white males and voters in Wyoming, Montana, Utah and Idaho.

        Because progressives like me and many others here simply can't coexist with the Third Way Wall Street DINOs and the neoconoid national security hawks who comprise a hefty portion of the party.  I, for one, am totally fed up with the party, which would be rated center-right in most of the rest of the world.

        If there was a realistic alternative to the left of the Dems, I'd jump ship in a New York minute.  For the time being, I'll work to improve the Dems but I don't see the party lasting as is, particularly if the Repugs do disintegrate
