THE END OF THE DLC ! ! ! ! !

by Claude Chaney

It has finally happened and it was long overdue....The DLC is toast.... gone, like the sudden end of nightmare. This gives the predominately progressive Democratic party the change to produce more unified platforms without having to pander to right wing corporate elements within the party. The DLC's goal was to
have TWO Republican parties. The 2010 elections were disastrous for Democrats but there was a silver lining in the dark cloud. DLC or corporate leaning Democrats lost to Republicans, as a result they are fewer in number, the Blanche Lincolns are almost all gone. Harry Truman once said that if the nation is given the choice of
right leaning Democrat and real Republican, the Republican will be chosen. He was absolutely right.
