Carol Platt Liebau: Cantwell MIA?

Cantwell MIA?

Seattle opinion "journalist" (reasons for the scare quotes here and here) Joel Connelly asks where Democratic senator Maria Cantwell is, observing that her campaigning seems anything but robust.

What may actually be frightening lefty Connelly more is the headway that Cantwell's Republican opponent Mike McGavick seems to be making. Losing the Washington U.S. Senate seat would be deadly to the Dems' hopes of retaking the Senate.

Help Mike McGavick here.

We are watching the downfall and collapse of the Democrat Party, to which I say, Yes and Amen!

Cliff - Unfortunately I must disagree. The death of the Democratic party - The REAL Democratic party - Remember them - JFK, Truman, FDR? - is unfortunate. Our republic is based upon a two party system. When a valid point of view disappears, even one that I may disagree with, we all suffer. Unfortunately what we now have is a craven shadow of what that great party once was.

You're right. What I meant to say is that the Democrat
Party has been hijacked by
by a pack of "Gremlins" if you remember the movie. They have destroyed it beyond repair and the only hope now is for it to be rebuilt, but under a new name and new management.

I love it when Republicans tell me what my party should be like.

These are polarizing times. Maybe it's right for the two parties in a two-party system to grow into polar opposites so that the public has a clear choice of policy directions.

Maybe. Maybe not. What do I know?

In the end. I think the parties will become what their constituents want them to become.
