Cap Times-from Fighting Bob Fest: Former independent presidential candidate Buddy Roemer and current Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, made the case that Democrats and Republicans were much too alike to tolerate any longer. Stein … made the case that Democrats are, in many ways, worse than Republicans.
While the audience was polite, such denunciations of Democrats were met with only a smattering of applause, with many of the listeners clearly uncomfortable with language equating the two major parties.
It's so easy to step up to the podium and bash what is still, despite a gutsy DNC, a flaccid Democratic Party. What takes real spine is to change the party from within.
