59. Sad, really...
that even here at DU, there's an "us vs. them" mindset against others in the same party.

In that vein, then I guess I'm one of the "them" also. The vilified ones. The ones who don't want Obama to be "tough" as much as hope he will do what's best for as many people as he can...not just a portion of the Democratic party that thinks it's got squatter's rights and also believes it knows better than he does how to do his job.

Eh. What can ya do...
