    after scott brown won ted kennedy's seat i called my senator's office (kerry) and begged them to push for the liberal policies people wanted

    i was told that what voters really want is for the two parties to work together and compromise

    my response -- that this was both spineless AND stupid -- was a conversation ender but i got the message

    this is of a piece w obama's obsession to appear as the OnlyAdultInTheRoom

    i suspect that this counterproductive and fantastical view is motivated by the inability and/or unwillingness of establishment dems to recognize a simple truth:

    the american people want the sensible leftist policies that the country desperately needs

    bc the dc dems have become rightwingers they are unable to process the fact that dems and independents are on their left

    please be advised that nothing in this comment should be construed as an endorsement of a third-party or third-party candidate
