  •  be warned, the democrats are at risk too (2+ / 0-)

    For all the cheering and smugness we are celebrating right now, the risk is that our party could also face such purity tests and splits.

    How many of us were angry at "blue dogs" for "spoiling" the potential of the Health Care bill?  

    What happens if we force out the conservatives in our party?

    (Mind you, I wouldn't shed a tear)

      there is a huge chunk of the American electorate that is moderate... or that has both liberal and conservative opinions on a variety of issues.

      Neither party serves those folks in the middle well if there are purity tests.  I truly think that the vast majority of Americans are left of center, but don't like to talk/think/play politics, and are turned off by the rhetoric of both extremes.

      Join us in the Grieving Room on Monday evenings to discuss mourning and loss.
