34. It's Just What He/She Thinks
I agree.... any Democrat who minimalizes others' civil rights for politics hurts the Party's prestige as civil rights advocates. Once the Dems do that they concede their stance on protecting the little guy, the one's who have no representation due to their race, sex or creed. Wavering on that principle is leaving you open to attack from the right wing. It is why some Republicans claim conservative Democrats are no "different" from the Republicans we see in office today. It's hard for me to disagree with that and on a number of occasions, this nasty fact has been used the Democratic Party in debates with righties.

On the other hand we have to work together....
