Too bad the democratic party isn't more inclusive. Did you see the NYT article from 1993 saying the same thing about republican disagreements? The more things change the more they stay the same. It is amazing how the republican party always needs to get more inclusive, but the democratic party is never portrayed that way.

The VP candidate in 2004 couldn't even win the party nomination in 2006, but hey, that isn't a purge. The dems are big tent all right.

The Devil and a friend of his were walking down the street when they saw ahead of them a man stoop down and pick up something from the ground, look at it, and put it away in his pocket. The friend said to the Devil, "What did that man pick up?" "He picked up a piece of Truth," said the Devil. "That is a very bad business for you, then," said his friend. "Oh, not at all," the Devil replied, "I am going to let him organize it."

I am sorry. Do you think that you are wrong in what you believe?

No I don't but neither do you so I'm going to quit trying to debate you because it always ends up as a dumb and pointless back and forth between us.

Enough said.

And I wouldn't read too much into last night's results. If NY23 would have gone to Hoffman, I'd be very worried. But as it is Corzine had many problems of his own making and the Democrats in VA selected a bad candidate.
The Democrats in the US also selected a bad candidate in the last Presidential election...

"Pelosi has reportedly told fellow Democrats that she's prepared to lose seats in 2010 if that's what it takes to pass ObamaCare," The Wall Street Journal reports."

I can't believe she would purge the party of moderates like this.

"Another Associated Press report notes that far-left groups like MoveOn.org are threatening to campaign against moderate Democrats if they oppose ObamaCare:

The group said Tuesday it was launching radio ads aimed at moderates [Blanche] Lincoln and Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., accusing each of "siding with insurance companies." It was also mailing sharply worded brochures to tens of thousands of households in Arkansas, Louisiana, Nebraska, North Dakota and even Maine--home of moderate GOP Sen. Olympia Snowe--urging recipients to pressure their senators. . . .
Conflict between ideological groups and moderate lawmakers is not uncommon in either party.
Yet the intensity of the progressive arm-twisting--and the resentment it is stirring among targeted senators--reflect the stakes as Congress tackles the top domestic priority of President Barack Obama and the Democratic Party."

WSJ op-ed page

I can't believe liberals would purge moderates like this. If only the Democratic Party could adopt a big umbrella approach like the Republicans.

Didn't Pelosi promise to put the bill on the internet for 3 days before a vote? Isn't the vote tomorrow? I can't find the bill on the internet.

Yup. That would be promise #No. 234:

Allow five days of public comment before signing bills
To reduce bills rushed through Congress and to the president before the public has the opportunity to review them, Obama "will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days."
http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/...fore-signing-b/

And the neat thing is that they have the Credit Card Act listed, among others (see the link). Passed through congress May 20, signed by the President on May 22. crazy
