I don't subscribe to a lot of what I hear about the DLC. I'm not a fan, don't get me wrong, but I think we need every Democrat in our corner that we can get, even if they aren't quite what we'd like them to be. NSP, however, subscribes a bit more to the Daily Kos
school.This kind of stuff
, however, just pisses me off. Marshall Wittman is almost exactly arguing for the other side. He's congratulating Sen. Leahy for helping Pres. Bush. I don't know whether Roberts should or should not be confirmed, but I do know that Democrats, at most, should be reluctantly allowing
their members to vote to confirm Roberts, certainly not encouraging them to do so. A weak Democratic party following, however complainingly, the GOP, will never be successful. A strong, alternative, reform Democratic party that refuses to go along with the GOP's unconscionable plans for America will have the future in its hands.
