25. On The Whole A Big Yes

There are some outliers, a few real progressive dems such as Alan Grayson, but the official Big D party apparatus is what republicans largely were post FDR and pre ex "B" actor Ronald Reagan. This started under Clinton and he recently admitted he was wrong about some things back then.

The different in dynamics between the far right and the far left is weird, mainstream republicans are being pushed further right because they're scared of a primary challenge from tea party types, while dems take the progressive voters for granted, shaft us, and get away with it time after time.
