    at eating their own. While many on the right are disappointed with some of our representatives and look around for alternatives, the far left is gathering their troops for an assault on their leadership:

    This is interesting, though I think most of these folks will still end up voting for the Democratic candidate because of other issues (i.e. most of these people support gay marriage, abortion rights, etc). Anyone, whether on the left or on the right, who votes for candidates based on a single issue is a complete and utter moron.

    These are the same people that either didn't vote or wrote in Dean or Kuchinich.

    This is why I think many of them will vote Democratic. Howard Dean will make a strong effort to bring them back into our party, and I think many will listen to him.

    If they don't vote for the 'nominee' the dems will not win. The mainstream of your party have already demonstrated a disdain for dean, Emanuel for one.

    In any case, we will see soon enough how it all washes out. One must laugh however, the dems are pinning their hope on republicans not voting. Good luck with that one.

    I don't know whether to laugh out loud or put my fist through the wall. I don't believe I've ever seen a more naked admission that the only objective, immutable reality in leftism is political expediency. There is simply no world for bastards like these, outside the Democrat Party's image and electability. I think it actually frightens me a bit, to know that people like this draw air and cast votes.

    They are following the type of behavior that has been advocated by Kos and reiterated at DU.
