    I dont just switch parties when it suits me and if Daily Kos did that I dont see why any Democratic politician or voter would take us seriously.
    The only time politicions take their voters seriously is when they cannot be certain of their votes. Right now the Democratic party feels that it can be certain of all of the votes of anyone to the left of, say, Barack Obama. (Who has said three times now that his politics are those of a Republican from 30 years ago.) Isn't it funny how they keep chasing those that they feel they can't be sure of: the big money boys who finance their campaigns, and the (nonexistent, but much-touted) uncommitted center, which somehow moves further to the right with every election cycle?

      you beleive that Democrats who are left will come running, begging for mercy and changing their positions. I dont think so. I think we will just have three parties, two of which can't win elections, pushing things further into conservative hands.

      The truth is that the country has moved to the right ever since the civil rights act because by and large aging white people became more conservative in both parties. That was still just 50 years ago. So a lot of old white people simply have to die off, and then youll see things begin to swing thenother way.

      Patience grasshopper.
