''If Democratic Party lurches left, it may fare worse''
Joel Connelly, the P-I columnist writes some good stuff, but when I asked him if it was fair to say he wasn't a "liberal/progressive," he agreed it was. His Monday column predicts failure for Democrats if they follow the path of Howard Dean. He quotes Congressman Adam Smith at length. "Lurch: to lean or pitch suddenly to one side." I've tried in the past to convince Connelly that this description did not fit Howard Dean, but he has resisted my persuasion, preferring to accept the mainstream media mantra about him.
