25. What do you think of Clinton hanging out with
Norguist's boss and fellow traveler, George Bush Sr.?

Obama's friends from the ranks of the anti-gay religious fundie brigade and others?

How about the Democrats forming alliances with Republicans, like Ted Kennedy and Orrin Hatch?

What about Democrats who party with Karl Rove (remember that?)

I don't get the vitriol over a blogger following Democrats', like Obama's, advice that sometimes we have to 'reach across the aisle to get things done' while Obama, Clinton, Ted Kennedy who actually have power and who have actually made deals that affect all of us, get a pass.

If it were up to me, I am against any Democrat hanging out with Bush Sr., or inviting the most rightwing fundies to give speeches at Democratic events. That felt like a slap in the face to me. Or making secret deals with Big Pharma. Or to make deals with the most rightwing Republicans in Congress, or for that matter hanging out with Karl Rove or Grover Norquist. But I'm sure I'd be called 'politically naive and a purist' (which I have been) for saying so.

She's a blogger! The reaction to this is beyond belief. But mostly it is unbelievably hypocritical if the same vitriol is not directed at the rest of the Dems who form alliances with the far right.
