When You Take the Money, You Pay the Price

Here's a little primer on the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC) which is a perfect example of what is wrong with the Democratic Party. It's the money, stupid. We will never have a political or economic democracy until we rid ourselves of the money. The DLC is bought and paid for, and they buy and pay for everything they want or think they need. The money comes first, before anything else. These guys swim in it, breathe it, and wallow in it. They manipulate it, buy other non-DLC Democrats with it, and they use it to advance their narrow interests and personal careers.
