"Republican lite" Tom Carper
and Progressive Democrat Rebecca Young give a perfect summary of where the Democratic party is right now. Notice how Carper stands for nothing
other than vote counting and being re-elected while the the Progressive Democrat demands that the party show some backbone. Carper: ""If we can't support a Joe Lieberman, who has broad support among moderates, it could hurt us in winning back some red [Republican] states."
Young: "Subconsciously, I think people get the sense that we're chasing after the Republicans to the right, I like to see us Democrats show some backbone and stop that. ... People like us are trying to go left so we really can wind up bringing the party back to the center."
I can't believe that someone with the great politcal instincts of Tom Carper can be so dead wrong on Lieberman.
