So what do we do? Not go the Nader route: we've seen how that ended. We have to challenge people within the party -- run believers in the constitution and proud liberalism against these villains in the primaries. Yeah, I would say every one of these Vichy Democrats--
Evan Bayh (Indiana); Tom Carper (Delaware); Bob Casey (Pennsylvania); Kent Conrad (North Dakota); Dianne Feinstein (California); Daniel Inouye (Hawai‘i); Amy Klobuchar (Minnesota);--should be challenged in the next primary race. Otherwise we're going to "lesser of two evils" ourselves right into oblivion.
Mary Landrieu (Louisiana); Blanche Lincoln (Arkansas); Claire McCaskill (Missouri); Barbara Mikulski (Maryland); Bill Nelson (Florida); Ben Nelson (Nebraska); Mark Pryor (Arkansas); Ken Salazar (Colorado); Jim Webb (Virginia). (list from here)
It's too bad. I really liked Jim Webb.
