The Blue Dogs are now I think extinct who were the moderates - what was considered a "classical" Liberal say in 1965 would now be considered typically conservative or even share views of the Tea Party. I guess my conclusion is that the Democrats have moved so far left in the past 50 years that there are no traces of such roots left in the Democratic Party.
    Just an interesting quote from an article of the neo-con movement.

    Neoconservatism... originated in the 1970s as a movement of anti-Soviet liberals and social democrats in the tradition of Truman, Kennedy, Johnson, Humphrey and Henry ('Scoop') Jackson, many of whom preferred to call themselves 'paleoliberals.' [After the end of the Cold War]... many 'paleoliberals' drifted back to the Democratic center... Today's neocons are a shrunken remnant of the original broad neocon coalition. Nevertheless, the origins of their ideology on the left are still apparent. The fact that most of the younger neocons were never on the left is irrelevant; they are the intellectual (and, in the case of William Kristol and John Podhoretz, the literal) heirs of older ex-leftists.

    Every American should have wanted all along to remove the vile Islamist regime that has been controlling Iran for thirty-five years now. During that time, the Khomeinists in Tehran have sponsored attacks that have killed several thousand American civilians and servicemen. And their attempts to spread Iran's control into Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and now, apparently, Yemen, have done a lot to foment the violence we are seeing in the Middle East.

    Only people who are willfully blind can imagine there is any way other than force to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. It's like imagining that the meetings of the League of Nations at Geneva in 1935, which produced a lot of hollow warnings and a few meaningless sanctions, would stop Mussolini from sending a force to invade Ethiopia. I think it's very likely Israel will bomb Iran's most important nuclear facilities once these talks end. What President Limpwrist does, if and when that happens--or if he does anything at all--remains to be seen.
