64. Calm down, it really isn't a bad thing that the country is NOT
Conservative on the issues. It's fine. Now all we Democrats have to do is support those candidates who need funding. Which is why I no longer donate to the Party, ever since it was taken over by Rahm Emanuel. I support individual candidates.

I would think you, as a democrat, would be happy to know that the country is more left leaning than Republicans would have you believe.
