I think the national party should
shake off all the DLC consultants.  Their time has come and gone.  Like the GOP, and its extremist free-marketers, they also have been shown to be wrong. I will not listen to the DLC-oriented GOP-lites ever again.  And I will never give one minute of labor for them either.

"One person, one vote" died at the hands of SCOTUS, January 21, 2010

I Agree about the DLC
I have always felt that the DLC was a response by business-oriented traditional conservatives to the fact that they had no political home except in the Democratic party because the Republicans had fallen off the right wing and into an abyss of nonsense.

Conservatives who believe that government wasn't the problem that Reagan talked about put on the mantle of the DLC and pretended to actually follow Democratic ideals. However, they were quick to sell their political souls to corporate interests.

I was always disappointed that Chuck Robb was one of the founders of the thing. Since the late 80's and early 90's, the DLC has become more and more irrelevant to those of us who actually are Democrats.

Do we have any reason to think...
...that Petts is a DLC consultant?  Or is that just a convenient pejorative?
