Good interview, but sometimes the truth hurts (0.00 / 0)

The Democratic Party is where progressives go to die.


The discussion of whether it would be healthy for the progressive cause to not hold back, but go after some of these status quo Dems and now and then take one out.  Can you think of an example where that has happened?  The Blanche Lincoln primary attempt was unsatisfying and the Joe Lieberman challenge left us with an even more hostile Joe Lie.  Surely there are some successes that I can't bring to mind.

Work harder and work smarter!

I think it's early (0.00 / 0)

Blanche was a classic DINO. She needed to get gone. At least with Repugs, you expect it when they screw you over.

As Court was saying, we need a VERY focused effort and that hasn't happened yet, but it must.
