I'm only trying to help. . .

. . .Democrats, and America as a whole, when I say this -- honestly -- but, here's an article that should be taped to the refrigerator of every DNC member who cares about the future of his/her party. John Leo tries to clue the opposition in on "just what went wrong", and describes what could legitimately be called a "Velvet Purge" within the Democratic Party as its cause.

"But what can the Democrats do to attract social-issues voters? They can't sell out their constituency of gays and feminists, Newsday columnist Marie Cocco said on NPR. No, but they can tamp down the extremists like the ones who censored Casey. Maybe (gasp!) they can even allow a few antiabortion Democrats to run for an important office, rather than forcing them all to convert to pro-abortion stands as the price of getting funding and support. Republicans aren't clamoring for Arnold Schwarzenegger and Rudolph Giuliani to convert."
