Will they see it? Will they care? Who is ‘they’ at this point, anyway?

Absent the smoke-filled-back-room system of the era, I don’t see how a political party unmarginalizes.

I just look at the Dems from the 80’s. No one thought they’d bounce back from Carter, Mondale, and Dukakis losing, but behind the scenes, especially after Mondale, there were centrist and pragmatist Dems who started laying the groundwork to kick the moonbats and hippies to the damn curb and bring the party back to the land of reason.

The GOP needs its own version of the DLC, but that won’t happen until there’s a nominee like Santorum or Palin that’s a true wingnut believer who gets killed at the polls.
