Read it all. To left-wing critics of the Administration who insist, as they did during the Clinton years, that we need a third party, or at the very least, a more robust left-leaning voice to force the Administration's hand, please remember that this kind of thinking gave us George W. Bush.
One can be critical of the Administration. One can be critical of the President. While it is certainly within the purview of the left to attempt to create a viable alternative to the Democratic Party, or at the very least sit out the election cycle, the results, as Skopcol indicate, will be disastrous for the country. Electing a conservative Congress, at this point, will result in the destruction of the last tatters of our social fabric, even as we attempt to knit it together without their help.
