Actually, I do have one thing to say

...or rather, quote:
Gilman argues that the Republicans have transformed themselves into the first ideologically-defined American political party to achieve success, while the Democrats remain an old-fashioned non-ideological party serving group interests. These partisan differences are manifest in approaches to governing: Democrats prefer to bargain and compromise, while Republicans assume that a majority entitles them to full control over policy outcomes. To challenge the Republicans successfully, Democrats must abandon the old-style of governing as policy tacticians and adopt an ideological approach to governing in the classic European sense.
That is from an abstract of an article written by a friend of mine, Nils Gilman, for The Forum (thanks, Zach!!!). More here (including said article), if yer interested.

Sounds right on the money to me. Not that I'm sure I want Democrats to become idealogues... but they do seem to have trouble really defining what they stand for from election to election, and that is becoming a real political problem for them.
