Thread Name: BS: Disaster for the Democrats?
Subject: RE: BS: Disaster for the Democrats?
I'm still waiting for someone to to tell me exactly which lobby it was that pushed the Dems to take up health care reform... No, not tyhe ones that ended up benefiting but the ones who were on the front end of pushing it???

I mean, yeah, Gore Vidal had some very useful insights and I loved the debates he used to have with Bill Buckley but there are times when a political party does something just because it is right and because it is way overdue... The Civil Rights Act being a case in point when even Lyndon Johnson knew in pushing it he was committing suicide for the Democratic Party in the South for years to come...
