    Becuase the Democrats didn't get a bunch of perfect bills passed, mainly due to the 60 vote threshold in the Senate.

      Dems DID pass----------such as a Republican-written welfare bill for the health insurance companies, renewing the PATRIOT act, dickering around on DADT until they got desperate for something to try to save their ass, selling out to Wall Street lobbyists, telecomm immunity, and defending the "unitary Presidency" in Federal court.

      Not exactly things I'd want to be active for.

      "Perfect bills"?  Nah, I don't need "Perfect bills".  But DEMOCRATIC bills would be nice.

      Or don't we actually stand for anything anymore, beyond pragmatically winning the next election.
