23. Thats the problem with a 2 party system...
With the republicans now being so extremely far-right its no mystery why the Democrats have internal problems. The majority of people are turned off by the republican agenda so much that they have no choice but to be Democrat. The republicans are so bad that the Democrats now acquired everyone from anarchists to enviromentalists to your average middle-class worker, each with a broad varying degree as to how society should be. Me personally, I like the diversity of the Democrat party, republicans just paint it as internal strife but I see it more as meaningful debate between a party of free-thinkers that don't just vote down party lines like the republicans do, with no actual thought or leadership of their own. With that being said, personally I wish this administration were further left and more unified than they are, of course Obama doesn't have his dad to call and get advice on how to be a president like Bush did and I could imagine it would take one more than 8 months to get acquainted and get everyone on the same page, so Im not counting it out, but I would like to see some big changes coming from them for the advancement of America and not just politics as usual. 'We the people, in order to form a more perfect union'...That's progressive.
