26. I know how you feel...The thing to remember is this: almost anyone can put a "d" after their name

but it doesn't mean they are democrats..It may simply be convenient

for one or more reasons to call themselves democrats.

You might recall Obama's former Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel.

Now Mayor, Rahm used to be be a congressman in my district of Chicago, and

he had a reputation of getting Republicans to run as "democrats"...Not to

"change" into democrats, ideologically, but to simply "say" they were Democrats and run

on a democratic ticket. That's how dirty politics work these days, so I identify

Democrats now only by what they DO, not by what they call themselves.
