Ditto. During the Bill Clinton years, the Democratic Party had FINALLY claimed the center and become a moderate, reasonable voice that belied the "tax and spend Democrats" label that most people couldn't support. But, now, it's going right back to the left-wing lunacy and, oddly enough, the Republican candidate is now the moderate!

Here's what ISN'T being reported but what I've read from dozens of observors on another blog -- the Republicans are DELIGHTED with the momentum of the ultra-liberal Dem. candidate and have been helping his cause along. In many states, people can cross party lines in the primaries to vote and Republicans are voting for Obama so they can run their moderate against the ultra-liberal in November and win.

It makes sense. The pundits are wondering why the polls are close but then the elections are not. They're polling Dem. voters and the Repubs. who are trying to force their ideal matchup are providing the bigger win.

And the idiotic Dem. party is just sitting back and letting this happen without a word. Weaklings. They don't deserve my support or membership so I'm done with them after my primary.

Well it seems that since we can't remain on topic there is no real point of keeping this open
