  •  We need fewer but better Democrats (4+ / 0-)

    The main problem the party has is that people believe Democrats can't govern.  Can't get things done.  This has been a problem for over 30 years.  They feel, at least the Republicans can pass legislation.  And they're right.  Until they feel the effects of that legislation.

      with corporations and PAC money; I'd say they are generally less likely to be corrupt.

      "Can't govern" .. a right wing frame, to basically bemoan the fact that Democrats [read: the real Democrats, the liberals/progressives] won't roll over as easily as the rest to corporate influence and money.

      Try to make it real, compared to what.
