    ...freaking family! Kos' comments, yesterday, basically ignored reality, too!

    From today's WaPo: "McAuliffe and the Clintons: A friendship as close as family, with benefits, risks for both."

    Yeah, Terry McAuliffe will show those Clintons how much the Party's changed! LOL! All that "triangulatin'" and such....ROFLMAO!

    Yeah, somethin' new and different! NOT!

      difference; it's a matter of relying on surrogates to do the dirty. It's what Congress does when it relies on the banksters to undermine the economy and remind the population that there is no free lunch.

      I suspect Terry McAuliffe is an example of the Democratic party triumphing over the grass roots. But, it's probably only temporary. That the parties have a vested interest in power, just as does the old guard in Congress, still has to register with more people.
      If the people are to govern, then the parties are just as anachronistic as the ruling elites. If they don't find a way to make themselves useful, they're going to fade away or be replaced by splinters.
