97. The truth is there will be no blood letting. The Dems will move further to the right
Edited on Tue Dec-22-09 02:44 PM by Jennicut
if the Rethugs get the Presidency in 2012 or control of the House and or Senate in 2010. If the Dem. base is ignored now we will be thought of as non existent with a Rethug in power. That is the reality. When the Dems lost the majority in Congress in 1994 Clinton did not move to the left. He moved further to the right. Nader getting votes in 2000 did not lead to a Progressive revolution. The answer is the country is never going to be progressive and politicians are corrupt. I doubt we will never get a real progressive as President because to get elected one needs to get an incredible amount of money to win. All Presidents will be centrists or conservatives. I personally thought Obama would be a bit more to the left then Clinton but no progressive savior. Maybe I need to find my old posts during the election.
