Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

The leftist netroots and, er, moderate Democrats

This long and interesting WsPo article offers an account of the tense relationship between the netroots and Rep. Ellen Tauscher (D-CA), who passes for a moderate in her party. They’re gunning for her because she hasn’t expressed support for immediate withdrawal from Iraq. If she doesn’t move closer to their line, she can expect a primary challenge in 2008. None of this makes Democrats who actually want to win more elections and govern very happy.

Do you think that advocating immediate withdrawal from Iraq will be an electoral loser in 2008? Probably not in most places.
