...agree with you but unfortunately that isn't where the party is right now.

When guys like Crowley hit the dirt, we know there's a vacuum. The last time we saw stuff like this was in the late sixties and early seventies. We went through a period during which we saw Republican and Democratic lite administrations but the hard left was kept at bay because leadership understood how unpopular those people are in middle America. We're not a democracy. We're a representative republic. The Electoral College is there to protect certain people from the big states. That is a fact.

It may be necessary to get sicker before we can get well.

Had Hillary been the nominee in 2008, we might not be sitting here like this. The party would be stable. Today, it is anything but.
