22. I've been screaming about this for months if not years
The difference between the DLC and the GOP is the rhetorical veneer that is layered on the very same "small government", "free trade", "trickle-down", "pro-big business", "pro-globalization", "pro-privatization", "pro-outsourcing", "pro-PNAC" ideologies.

Olin and Bradley wouldn't fund the DLC if it didn't have the above core ideologies. At the same time, Olin, Bradley and Big Business can give a rat's ass about abortion or any other talkingpoint issues- which is why they have no problem playing both GOP and DLC. As long as they get the above, the rest is immaterial to them.

Anyways, I disagree about "there is NOTHING in this platform to get people excited". It excites the hell out of me, albeit in a VERY negative way.
