  •  So we attack the conventional wisdom (3+ / 0-)

    Because until we do, the choice is between a soft Republican and a hard Republican.

    That doesn't mean that we should in any way excuse a vote affirming torture. I can't believe that I even have to assert that.

      I am in fact saying...put a progressive up against any blue dog democrat you believe is out of step with his/her constituents...If they win the primary and the GE then the constituents will support a better Democrat...if they lose the primary challenge then that is the best Democrat we can get so we should support in the GE...

      In addition, by primarying the Democrat you believe is out of step...win or lose we send a message to that Democrat that he/she needs to watch their step if they want support from the Democratic base.

      Until I see evidence that RW republicans will even listen to a progressive constituent...there is no sense in supporting them

      BTW, I do not support torture...
