Democratic Party, Perspective

Please don’t let your disappointment manifest in complacence. If the democrats stay home in droves, we have an opportunity to put some good local candidates into office. Unless we stay home in droves ourselves.
Sure, there are lots of things that I wish would have gone differently, and a lot of things that could have turned out more conservative and just plain better. But at this moment in the 2008 election, the Democrats are tearing into each other and doing nothing but making themselves and their party look bad. We should just kick back, try not to attract their attention, and let them drag it out for along while.
If you think everything is peachy in the Republican party then you would be mistaken. Why is it that we had to resort to an extreme centrist candidate who breaks ranks with the party a multitude of times and on a multitude of issues while the dems are having a pissing match over which two of their most liberal/progressive candidates to put forward?
I’m still sorely disappointed that the we didn’t choose someone who better represents our party’s beliefs. I’m expecting to be sorely disappointed when it comes to global warming/carbon credits, embryonic stem cell research grants, an expanded fed regardless of who wins the election now.
It’s not just about winning elections. The ideology of Clinton, Obama, and McCain are all very disappointing to me and does not fit in with the ideology that this country was created with or that made it great.
