The Hard Left Crowd

Posted by Jabawacefti

As it is making the rounds, Bill Clinton is apparently going to campaign for Joe Lieberman.

Apparently, the crowd from Kos just thinks that reactionary Bill has gone too far.

I liked Clinton as much as the next Lefty Latte Sipper, but Lieberman doesn't come close to representing the opinions or the positions of the democratic party.

At most he represents a sub-set of opinion. How does that make those that disagree with his candidacy "hard left"?

The bottom line is this, the Republicans and the Democrats move left and right from time to time. My personal opinion, the Democrats have moved way to the left. Lieberman, in my mind, represents a centrist view. Bill Clinton, from day one, tried to move Democrats to the center, which is one of among many reasons why he is campaigning on behalf of Lieberman. It is also another reason why he won, and why few Democrats today have a broad based appeal.

I guess I think of the hard left (or right) as a group of people that won't abide the center.

That's eminently reasonable.

What makes Lieberman "centrist"?

What moves to the Left have the dems made that you see as being destructive?
