Response to delisen (Reply #18)

22. This was entirely predictable.

When Democrats lose an election, they move right. It happened in 2000, and it is happening again now. Those "progressives" who stayed home or voted third-party should have studied their recent history. The way to move the Democratic Party right is by voting Democratic, and then calling and sending letters to your representatives to make sure they don't forget about your existence. You are not going to teach the Democratic Party a lesson by not voting for them. Unfortunately, it's too late now. And the saddest part is that "progressives" are likely to repeat the same mistake in, oh, twenty years or so. We never learn.
