How do we make peace with Blue Dogs without giving them their way? [View all]

To me, the GOP eating themselves is a beautiful sight. Love watching the crazies eat the lazies...

But don't think it couldn't happen in our party.

Our party is a fragile coalition too: of blue collar, greens, the middle class and the blue dogs.

The Blue Dogs have much more in common with the GOP: They want to lower taxes, keep our wars burning and start a few more, and they love the idea of fracking.

They also hold a lot of power in our party.

So we can either split the party and be the mirror image of Republicans,

Or we can keep that uneasy alliance, but prevent the Blue Dogs from getting anything of note.

I vote for option #2.
