    I have many "moderate" friends who are fleeing the Rs to become independents. I think your friend's response is about as good as it gets as they walk out the door.

    Heads up though ... my concern is that they decide to join us as moderate Ds in our 2-party system and unleash the corporatist Blue Dogs on us.

      Dems. It's made the Party drift toward many of the neoliberal corporatist and militarist policies it has been promoting in the last several years, and it's the reason that the White House is aching for a Grand Bargain sell-out of Social Security and Medicare. But yeah... more Blue Dogs is probably what we'll get in the Dem "tent" widens too much more. But if it leads to a Dem supermajority (like California has), then I will celebrate it.
