      should we just make up another name for them?

            ...seriously lacking in foundation for your assertion that this is what "they" call themselves.

              The woman who helped create PUMA was interviewed on TV this week. The name under her picture (video link) was: Jane Doe (can't remember her real name), PUMA. All the questions were directed to her in the context of what PUMA was going to do, how much money they've raised, etc....  (They have changed what the PUMA initials mean, tho...to something you could actually say in public.)

                ...what are there, like, three members of this special club? I absolutely cannot believe that anyone is focusing on them, or giving this alleged movement any credence. I stick by my claim: When you start dissing fellow Democrats because they didn't vote the way you did, you divide the party.

                  and there may only be three members of PUMA - but they sure are getting more media coverage than the rest of us.

                  I just don't understand why you are lecturing people here instead of on websites where you would actually be 'talking' to people who agree with PUMA. (And why you kept denying there was any such group.)

                  I don't diss anyone who voted in the primary election for someone other than Obama. I don't have a lot of respect, tho, for people who can't let go of the fact their choice didn't win. Dividing the party, indeed.

                    ...letting go is a process. You have to respect it. These people genuinely believe that the Democrats have really, really, really screwed up. I am one of them. I think selecting Obama was a mistake.

                    And PUMA exists, I guess, but the only place I see them getting attention is here...and then from here, to the traditional media.
