Watch dem blue dogs now
Meet the new effective leaders of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Blue Dog Coalition.
I dunno, maybe it's really worse in Sacramento than I thought. =:o
Take Oklahoma's one Dem in Congress, Dan Boren. He has voted with the president/GOP 65 percent of the time the past two years, which makes him a very conservative Dem, but if he were a Repub, he'd be considered a RINO/liberal.
The Republicans were voted in during 1994 because the Democrats couldn't get government to work the way people wanted it to work. The people didn't much think the Reps would be that much better but they thought they would be better than the Dems. The Reps turned out to the the 21st Century version of the Viking raiders, looks like they slaughtered every porker in the whole of America. Now the Dems need to assert up front that they can't get the job done with out the Republicans help. Forget Bush, just ignore him! He is a lame lame duck dufas, Court the Republicans who want to stay in their power circle past 2008. You only need 9 fellow travelers of Republican vintage in the Senate and then you are veto proof. Play nice and make deals boys and girls. Let the plate grow cold before you extract your revenge. You will have time after 2009.
Let me be one of the first to say:
Bill Richardson for President!
Obamma for Vice President!
Let the games begin.
