    Well, consider minority majority districts which concentrate baclk power so strongly that you end up with a minority democratic caucus from a state.

      for the constituents within a district but even those legislators are expected to bunnyhop for the big boys or lose their national funding.  Within the legislature itself, it's all about bringing home the pork.

      As far as I am concerned, the only answer is to start at the bottom and rework the entire party.  That means, no more money or time to DNC projects -- that can all go to local candidates and committees. If the DNC wants my help in national races, they have to give me something in return -- like a real say over who runs.  Like a real say in the construction of the party platform.  

      No more nacho-man marionettes that hew the DLC line in order to get the funding.  I'm through with the top-down, "do as we say" Democratic Party.  Finis.
