45. No more corporatists and warmongers. Just back up for a minute.

Forget the posts about the general election. Nothing....NOTHING...is more important now than making sure we aren't force-fed a corporate viper as the Democratic nominee.

IMO *that's* the goal for the corporate Third Way. Once they've ensured that, they need not give a rat's ass which party actually wins, because the corporate agenda is ensured either way.

In fact, I suspect that corporatists on both sides want Hillary to run so that we *will* have a Republican next time, because Americans are getting too wise to the fact that all these corporate politicians in both parties are actually fighting for the same agenda.

That's what oligarchy means.

Putting a Republican in next time will help the credibility-strained propaganda machine. All the Third Way corporate shills and propagandists will be able to put on their liberal costumes again and pretend to wail alongside the rest of us as the last vestiges of the democratic nation we once knew are drowned in the toilet, this time by Republicans. Of course, all that "opposition" will be carefully and mysteriously futile in terms of policy.

But the important thing is that Dems will be consistently SAYING the right things again, and looking like the firebrand populist party we need them to be.

And the people will be reassured that we really do still have a democracy, we can stop all this silly talk about oligarchy and needing fundamental change and such, and we can all go home and watch "Hunger Games" and grouse because our only problem will be that Republicans are in office for a little while and we need to get them out and the Third Way Democrats back in.
