For Democratic infighting spectators

Hunter at dailyKos has a good post looking at the controversy of the DLC (Democratic Leadership Council) within the party, as well as at its tendency to call for solutions rather than offering concrete proposals. And a lot of other stuff.
What we see, in both the DLC and among other Democratic pundits and strategists, is a modern Democratic leadership so focused on triangulation and exposition, so obsessed with precise and intentionally puddle-shallow framing, that it is categorically unable to react to the changing circumstances of actual campaigns, much less of leadership.
donkey Interesting if you're intrigued by the factionalism, and also if you're trying to think generally about what the Dems need to do to start succeeding more on the national front.
