    One of three things has to happen.
    1) The Tea Party loons split off to form their own party, and the Republican Party regains some sense of sanity.
    2) A group of Blue-Dog Democrats and "moderate" Republicans form a third party, and the Republican party fades into insignificance.
    3) The loons end up with complete control of the government due to random fluctuations, and we are screwed.

      Both Blue Dog Democrats and "moderate" Republicans are essentially nonexistent anymore. And these two groups are the most likely to be completely bought into the existing system and least likely to bravely forge out and form a new party.

        Just because they're seldom elected, doesn't mean they're not there.

        The problem is in this hyper-partisan "us" vs "them" ideology war makes it extremely difficult for a candidate who is perceived as a moderate to even win a nomination for federal office.

    •  #2 -- they move back to the Republican Party (0+ / 0-)

      where they came from.

      The Republican Brand is too big an intellectual property* to die.

      * in a legal sense, not that it's a property full of intellectuals

      Hillary does not have the benefit of a glib tongue.
