  •  It's DLCitis (6+ / 0-)

     The absolute most important thing in the world to Ben Nelson and his ilk is not serving the public, or getting re-elected, or even maximizing campaign contributions. The Most Important Thing In The World to the DLC crowd is approval from Republicans.

     It's analogous to the gun fetish held by so many right-wingers. Just like guns substitute for male-genitalia shortcomings among the most fanatic elements of the gun culture, approval from Republicans is the Mark of Manhood for deeply insecure, self-hating Democrats like Ben Nelson and his DLC spiritual brethren.

     That's the only thing that makes life worth living to them.
