    believe the Dem establishment and party leadership to be better in that respect? Look, both major parties are institutions that derive a lot of their funding and energy from milking their base's desire for activism (stirring and fanning the latter in the process), but base their actual policy decisions on what the establishment thinks is most likely to perpetuate whatever power and privileges they have. I personally have long come to accept that. I still support the Dems, because I support individual Dem policies and personalities and because the Dems are overall definitely the lesser of two evils as long as the two-party game must be played. But I'm under no illusion as to how this party operates and what type of politicians it selects for party leadership positions.
