Yep, the one thing the GOP has going for it, while the far right is vocal, they are not the 'base.' The DNC has a serious problem in that their support is way left of the middle.
I would dispute Carville's famous quote. The problem with being a Democrat is that they have unwittingly let their party be taken over by the radical left without a fight. They must have a death wish for there are no grassroots movements underway by regular Democrats to rescue their party. They are too cowed by their current "leadership" to stand and be counted when a Joe Lieberman or a Zell Miller can't take it anymore and publicly takes a stand against the party's lies and distortions. The Democrats in Washington who banded together to try to steer the party to the center have been silenced, and "Star Hillary", who constantly juggles what she stands for to be in line with poll results, is learning that she must toe the "party line" or become a target.
The pendelum swings. It never rests. It has peaked and is coming back to the middle. When the left looks at the middle, they think its far right, and are trying to support the pendelum from coming back down now by STOPPING its movement (negative attacks on the right instead of good ideas to DRAW middle America towards them) and cause it to continue its upward swing to them. (see my sig! )
The recent supreme court and federal court appointees are like a magnet drawing it back to the middle. Lets continue our draw to the middle and the eventual swing back up the right by being ATTRACTIVE rather than defensive about our VALUES.
Keeping an eye on that Rahm Emanel, a former officer of the Israeli army, as well as a Clintonista:
Your right the pendelum does swing back and forth with whatever side has the momentum winding up the winner for a while.
