Not Pacifists

It looks like the majority of likely Democratic voters in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina are looking for a presidential candidate who backed regime-change in Iraq.
I’ve said it before. Liberals and Democrats are not pacifists. Pacifism may make intellectuals and activists swoon. But not the rank and file.
The Democratic Party is an unstable coalition of mutually hostile factions. The left-wing is in total denial. Implosion (at least in the short run) is a real possibility.
