“A party with no room for Joe Lieberman -- or for that matter, such occasionally lonely dissenters on the left as Russ Feingold or Bernie Sanders -- is a party with no prospects for a majority. It's the worst possible time for Democrats to make that choice.”Will the DLC change the mind of the ideologically committed Democratic Party leftists? The answer: hell no! The radicals smell blood and want total control. Any sort of compromise is perceived as abandoning one’s moral values. More moderate Democrats, who dare speak out on national issues, will inevitably be drummed out of the party.
