3. Ah, but I think we now have DP3. And that's only modern times. I cannot speak to

the Democratic Party that Jefferson supposedly founded, but let's say that was DP i and lasted pretty much until Truman, Eleanor (but not Franklin) Roosevelt, Adlai Stevenson, JFK, RFK and LBJ, at least in terms of civil rights.

So, DP 2 was the better parts of DP 1--populist economics, plus finally getting to the correct side of civil rights.

DP3 is DP2 after conservative Democrats, many of them Southern white males, finally got complete control of the Party, north, south, east and west, both economically and as to backpedaling a good deal on so called "cultural" issues. (What a misnomer for equal human rights!)

I mean no offense to Southern white males in general, or to Southern white male Democrats, but Southern white male conservative Democrats, especially ones with Presidential hopes for themselves, were the core of the group that ended up taking over the Democratic Party from within.
