The Democrats’ Permanent Majority

Over at Huffington Post there’s an article about Chuck Schumer and the strategy of running moderate Democrats. (Read it, it has some decent points.) The problem with Pachacutec’s idea is that it won’t push the country back to the left, essential if we’re going to save this country. The strategy we need to follow is to run as liberal candidates as can be elected. In Tennessee this means the pro-life, anti-gun control Harold Ford, while in San Fransisco you could probably elect an Hispanic, lesbian Buddhist who smokes pot. Gradually we can increase peoples’ tolerance for more liberal candidates, and elect more radical politicians. My two, badly articulated cents.
