    kos has stated he's all in for hillary and ao is the blog.  Hillary is joe lieberman in a pants suit.

      NY is a blue state: even a contested democratic primary ought not to throw the election of governor to a republican.  Is the same thing true for the entire country? Is the entire country Blue? No.  
      The country as a whole is not, in fact, liberal or left.  HRC or whoever the Democrats run, in the end, has to capture a whole lot of people, even people who don't think they are dems.

        The country as a whole is, in fact, liberal. They just don't know it.

        Poll after poll shows that the majority of Americans support policies that we here would describe as "liberal". But only if it doesn't have that label on it.

        Because the RW has poisoned the well with regard to any descriptor that people on the left might use for themselves, they have essentially robbed us of the ability to advocate for our own positions. If most people hear those positions described out of the context of left-right politics, they like them.
