Meet the Dems


I like this representation of where various prominent Democrats stand with regard to the DW-NOMINATE system of ideological classification a lot. In one picture, it sums up a lot of important points including the paucity of clear substantive differences between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama on domestic issues, the fact that liberals should appreciate Nancy Pelosi as one of the good guys, the fact that Joe Lieberman's turn toward rancid rightwingery doesn't really seem justified by his previous history in office, and the fact that Sam Nunn would be a very odd VP choice.
