18. an alternative theory on Dem spinelessness: when big business knows a Repub can't win

they back or find the most conservative Democrat they think can make it through the primaries.

That person is free to vote their conscience on cultural issues, but on war, the economy, Wall Street regulation, privatization, and sometimes taxes, they vote with the Republicans.

I think that's why Howard Dean's 50 state strategy irked some top Dems: it could have put heat on corporate owned Dems to act like Dems or be removed.
