Healing the Terrible Split within the Democratic Party

Fafblog! worries about the yawning gulf within the Democratic Party:

Fafblog! the whole worlds only source for Fafblog.: THE GREAT DIVORCE: Sometimes I just can't stop worryin about the Democratic Party an its terrible internal divisions an stuff.

On the one side you got your centrist DLC-types with their balanced budgets an their lax gun control regulation an their health care plans an their reverence for Bill Clinton.

On the other side you got your hard-core lefty Howard Dean types with their balanced budgets an their lax gun control regulation an their health care plans an their reverence for Bill Clinton.

If only there was some kinda way to bridge this vast an terrible ideological gap!

I have an idea--it just might work. Let's start a new, "third way" movement within the Democratic Party. Its platform will have four major planks:

  1. Balanced budgets.
  2. Lax gun-control regulations.
  3. Health care reform.
  4. Reverence for Bill Clinton.

Maybe this can bring both sides together.
