    And we all know that the Democratic Party is too.

    But we elect them anyway because the best we can do sometimes is get as close as we can.

    In Hillary's case ... she's a pretty good approximation.

        The goal should be a Democratic president, which is what we have in Obama and would have also had in Hillary.

        The word for those who attempt to take over an existing political party in order to force it into taking positions that don't have any mainstream support is called "entryism".  I'm about at the end of my patience for those who, on a "Democratic" site, do little but attack our Democratic officials like Tom Vilsack, Collin Peterson, Hillary Clinton, Heath Schuler, Joe Manchin, Ben Nelson, Ken Salazar, and even Obama.  When you have a cancer you don't try to coexist with it, you cut it out.  Loony-left entryists stamping their feet demanding their fringe issues be heard (such as zero-logging) are that cancer right now.
