There IS no Democratic party

Right now Obama, Reid, Schumer, Durbin, Pelosi, and Hoyer are planning how to cut Social Security. The Democratic party of FDR, JFK, LBJ, et al is gone. It is no more.

Skin in the game? Sorry, no skin left!

This is why I advocate voting for emergent parties. I don't know what it will take for our fellow progressive bloggers to recognize that the Democratic party is irredeemably corrupt; but I think at some point they will throw in the towel and start advocating for emergent parties. Matt Stoller voted for Jill Stein. He could be considered early majority where lefty politics is concerned. The others will follow, they just have not come to terms with what has happened.

Its fine to vote for Jill Stein, I did myself.  But there is no Green Party.  But i don't think you can build a national political party from the top down by running presidential candidates.

The progressive caucus seems to be made up of a spectrum of types, from total hacks to genuinely well intentioned people under pressure from "party bosses" to "support the president". My CPC critter has an almost cult following among unions and activists, in SPITE of the fact that he's a dem.

Would it be possible to get just a few (or even just ONE) of these guys to "convert" to Green? Or, challenge them from the left with a member running Green? 

Or is that Pony-wishing?
