    That's because Democrats aren't a bunch of mindless sheep that parrot the party line.

    Generally Democrats are more of a heterogeneous group than Republicans, with more differing beliefs or factions within the party, so it is no surprise that they are looking disorganized. I do not think the Democrats have resembled anything really organized since they days of Clinton. Also take into account that the Democrats did not win this election because they brought some sort of organized platform or solution to the people. They won because people began to dislike the job that Bush has been doing.

    Gentlemen, they were organized as a minority, to block things. Really, disingenuous of you. :rolleyes:

    That's what minorities do.

    You don't understand politics very well, do you?

    See, the righties are in the minority now. The Democrats are the majority. So the Democrats will debate the issues amongst themselves, and come to a near consensus, and if the Republicans don't like it, they'd better form together as a unified block if they want any chance of preventing it.
