Gah, Democrats! I think, sometimes, that they're all a bunch of failed wonks and advisors - they have that mindset, but they're not good at either. Makes for shitty leadership, and not a lot of passion.

Plus then there's the fact that they act like the caricature of liberals that conservatives always attack - cooperative to a fault, tolerant of everything and anything (except of their more outspoken members), unwilling to get their hands dirty, out of touch, etc.

I wonder if some of it stems from the neutering of the labor unions in this country, and the postwar strategy of hippie-bashing to gain credibility with the establishment - basically, the Democrats have estranged themselves from the parts of the left that knew how to bring passion and dirty fighting to the scrum, and now view both with suspicion and disdain.

Boring, yes. And dangerous - because if you're not willing to fight for your principles, you might as well not have any.
