13. More from the CQ Politics article...sounds like Third Way is competing with them.
Quite frankly I have read the stuff at their website, and I see little difference.

SO now we have a battle of the think tanks, while all of them are warning against the "liberals".

If that wasnt competition enough, theres Third Way, created four years ago to provide policy and messaging advice to centrist Democrats. It started as a small shop as well, but it is expanding this year, aiming for a staff of 25 and a budget of $5 million. Third Way has seized on the DLCs leadership turnover as a chance to dominate the market for Democratic centrist ideas.

Jonathan Cowan, the groups president, calls From and Reed brilliant innovators who created a marketplace in Democratic politics that didnt exist before. But as in all movements, you see generational changes, Cowan said. Third Way is now emerging as the next generation of leadership for the progressive movement.


Doesn't matter who wins the battle....their policies take us sharp right. Third Way moving in on the DLC's turf, but they are mostly just alike.
