71. Uh, noooooo. DLC pretty much IS Republican
Their values are far too close to Repug for there to be any substantive difference. When you look at their funding (includes very far rightwing, as in Dominionists), and their purpose -- get away from Dem "special interest groups" (which is our entire base: African Americans and other minorities, women esp. pro-choice women, labor, etc.) and be business-friendly, you really have to think again about Lenin's quote (and as long as I'm quoting that, I'll throw in a few links to go with it):
