Will a liberal be able to move her party slightly to the right? By right I mean a very, very moderate democratic party that will leave the liberals to lobby for what they want as opposed to demanding it and getting it. It's no secret that the liberals and the neo-cons can be poisonous to their parties if and when they control the party. Whichever party will reign them in to the point of we will listen, discuss, and modify issues to come to some type of center will dominate American politics for the next 20 years. The G.O.P had their chance and they cowered under Bush. In some respects it can be said the democrats did this also...but they have the out of they did not control Congress or the Senate. Americans will be optimistic ... which is a good thing ... let's hope Pelosi can control her liberal nature and take a step right....if she can....she'll have the moderates like myself on her side.
