Response to hay rick (Reply #18)

19. Well, I started this response too late and too tired to do it justice

but once I waded in, I couldn't easily wade back out. Your response adds a lot.

I have a longstanding grudge against the DLC and I do recognize they folded because they burned too many bridges. Suddenly we have the Third Way propagating the same tone and attitude. I think we all need to collectively speak out against them because they are not progressive and should have no influence with Dems. Nor should they be allowed to speak in our name!

Before too long, they will arrogantly assert that while they do not have the power to choose the Democratic candidate, they do have the influence to block those they do not want to run and empower someone else more in alignment with their policies to get the nomination. This is exactly what the DLC did pre-2004 to pull the rug out from underneath Gore from running again. And, to make matters worse, the DLC'ers had the poor judgment to give the Washington Post an interview stating exactly that. What an arrogant, egotistical group. And they are back, just with a different name.
