    everywhere in the country, even in the south. Unfortunately, they won't. There are people who are moderate Democrats and those people need representation too. I am frustrated with the Blue Dogs too but if we ran progressives against everyone of them, we would lose most of the races. See how well a progressive is doing here? And you can't blame Charlie Crist for that because even without him the progressive would not win. That makes me sad but I know its reality at the moment.

      why would a dem-lite have more support then a dem ?
      relative to republicans, they are both virtually identical...
      wouldnt the 'rugged westerner' or the 'macho southerner' prefer a representative with some clear convictions (of the mental state, not the penal system)..
      "if you also care about others, then you are a democrat. if you dont, you are a republican". isnt it that simple ?

        the same thing to all people. You think progressive = Democrat. Why do you think that? Because Tea Party = Republican? Not sure all Republican's would agree with that. In Nebraska, a Democrat is very different than in California or in Illinois or in New York. Here in Florida, popular Democrats are moderates. In Georgia, they are conservatives. Of course, districts are more important for the house but it still stands. It all depends on the constituents. Like they say..its all local.
