    Though it's good to see democrats be patriotic, they are heading towards true nationalist socialism.

    me like, me like. Do those looneys REALLY think they can wrest the party from the Clintonistas? Whatever. Even reasonable dems know the glaring failures of socialism are too much to keep pasting over with their worn out glue.

    I know. But it's such huge victory that they know they must sound conservative to win. Voters will know who the real deal is. the(R)'s.

    Looks like there is a civil war within the Democrat party. The scary thing is that I think the kooks are winning.

    I dont think this is something we should be looking at gleefully. if those nut cases succeed this country will have a serious problem.

    This piece from the DLC is a well written essay that I happen to have some disagreement with. There are factions within the Democratic Party, but there are also factions within the Republican party. Don't believe me? Read the wonderful book "It's My Party, Too" by Christine Todd Whitman. There will always be internal debates within both parties. Our party encompasses moderates like Joe Lieberman, Al Gore, Tom Vilsack, etc, and liberals like Ted Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, Charles Schumer, etc. The Republican party has a similar division with moderates like John McCain, Arlen Specter, Olympia Snowe, and conservatives like Bill Frist, George W. Bush, and Pat Robertson. There are always internal power struggles within both parties.

    Conservatives are wise enough to close ranks at election time while the liberals are not.

    And don't look now, but moderate liberals jumped ship a few years back.
