23. I agree with this one phrase "continuously shift"
In fact I wrote a post yesterday where I acknowledged something similar. In my view there is no way Bill Clinton or anyone else can prevent those shifts, they can have some effect by use of their campaigning skills, but in the end the electorate chooses the direction the country will go.

What amazes with all this "centrist" bashing is that so many here seem to have a poor understanding of the last couple hundred years of our political and economic history, and are unable to apply any of it to the future apparently. Instead there is this bitching and blaming our problems on one of the most successful politicians of our time.

How many more house seats, senate seats and Presidential races would we have lost if there was no change to the party platform. The 70's and 80's saw a major shift in the fundamental political environment here. It was because the electorate demanded changes.
