31. Yeah, but you still have somewhere around half of DU that disagrees with you..
I really have to wonder if any of these "moderate centrists" have ever negotiated for anything in their lives, if they did they got taken to the cleaners.

It seems to me that these are the type of people who go into a car dealer and pay the full asking price on a full sized SUV these days.

The political leadership is a different matter, they know exactly what they are doing and they end up where they want, with their corporate sponsors getting ninety plus percent of what _they_ want.

I really wish more Democratic voters would see through this and move over to the far left, that's really the only way we can begin to move back toward the center while the Repubs are screaming and crying to move to the far right. This is a tug of war and one team is putting their entire weight to move the rope in their direction while half the other team is just holding onto the rope with one hand and giving a slight tug.

And yeah, it pisses me off too. Nice post, rec'd.
