The Washington Post gives a dispatch from the land of obvious today: "[Democratic]Party Set to Take Left Turn." Dont they read this blog? Mirroring comments made here yesterday, the Post muses:
But most troubling to some in the centrist movement, the incoming House Democratic leadership is deeply rooted in the liberal hotbeds of the two coasts. This could spell trouble for Democrats in the years ahead. If the party moves too far left, political observers say, it could alienate swing voters and complicate its efforts to win back the presidency and control of Congress in 2004.
I couldnt agree more.
