So there's a fight brewing in the Democratic Party. And it has nothing to do with John Roberts. Instead, it was prompted by Hillary Clinton assuming her role as head of the DLCs American Dream Initiative and immediately calling for a ceasefire in the fight over the direction the party should be taking.

Right. Sure. I believe a little translation is in order. Because in almost every instance where a politician or political group calls for a "ceasefire," or "a stop to the mud-slinging," or "unity," what theyre really saying is: "I'm calling on the other side to stop disagreeing with me, so we can move forward in the only right way. Which is my way."


The good news is that the DLCs disingenuous call for unity was a bust except in the way it united the progressive blogosphere. Because if there's one thing that can bring progressive bloggers together, it's another clueless call by the DLC for capitulation "unity."

Long gone are the days when the DLC was the only game in town. Now the pushback was instant, with bloggers tearing into the DLC, each sounding different notes but together creating a clear chorus of dissent.

1. Nice to read............
and I hope the DLC is taking note of the Blogosphere's disdain for them and all they stand for. Without the grass roots Dems, the DLC doesn't stand a chance. Maybe that's their strategy.

2. Thanks! DLCer Clinton has hitched her wagon to the wrong star.
Obviously, they have no idea what is going on outside of the beltway and the echo chamber of their fan club.
