View Diary: Poll: It's not just Democratic politicians who lack a spine (290 comments)

  •  Party of lawyers. (0+ / 0-)

    While lawyers are over represented in both parties, there are far more lawyers in the Democratic party. Repubs include exterminators, tv and radio personalities, sports figures, contractors, etc; not nearly the same proportion  for the Dems.

    I have nothing against lawyers, but I think Democrats are inherently abstract and are always ready to look at both sides as a result of this legalistic predominance.

    Thus Dems want to 'settle out' rather than go to the court of public opinion and risk losing.
