Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Fri Dec 28, 2012, 10:08 AM

Serious questions for those who are convinced that Obama, Clinton, and Gore are not liberals. [View all]

1. Can you name any elected officials who are truly liberal?

2. From that very short list, can you name one that could ever be elected president?

3. Does the simple act of negotiation and compromise with the right automatically disqualify any politician from being a "true liberal"?

4. Does the complete failure of the Tea Party and their similar stances about conservatism bother you at all? Are we holding up the Tea Party as role models with the willingness to emulate their failures?
