Comments: What would it take?

Question: Has the right acknowledged that the left side of the political spectrum is a legitimate section of the electorate, not merely hyperkinetic, unbathed moonbats who love Che Guevera and can't be trusted to make reasonable, objective decisions for the country?

I can think of several who are not. I just wish the powers that be in the DNC would cater to their interests as well as the fringe.

Jack, I think so.

Unfortunately, the Left has put the moonbats that cannot be trusted in leadership positions. For instance, Ted Kennedy was willing to co-sponsor the No Child Left Behind Act. If there were any way for President Bush to endorse a liberal politician, it would probably be by getting him to co-sponsor a key piece of legislation, like No Child Left Behind.

But since then, the Left has decided that Kennedy's bill is not liberal enough. Once upon a time Kennedy would have been the poster child of liberalism in this country, and today he's not liberal enough? Where would that put the "mainstream" Democratic leaders?
