"Spurred by Midterm Losses, Liberal and Moderate Democrats Square Off Over Strategy" NYT

Here is a clear argument between Left and Right in the Democratic Party at this time, and going forward. It is interesting that the Third Way, successor to the DLC as the center right of the Democrats, is co chaired by Kay Hagan, and most of the losing Democratic senators were blue dogs.

And, as pointed out by the article, this has implications for the candidacy of Hillary Clinton in 2016, which many take as a given, which would put the War Party back into the saddle (even more than current events) and pandering to Wall Street and the banksters would increase. Can you spell oligarchy, on steroids. Total surrender to the GOP would be slightly worse. President Cruz anyone?
