Orson Scott Card reviews Hugh Hewitt's new book and says, "As a Democrat, I would hope that a solid trouncing of our fanatic-ruled party at the polls this November would serve as a wakeup call and remind Democrats that they only get to do the things that the Democrat Party exists to do if they get enough votes to control the White House and Congress. Which requires that you have serious candidates and embrace serious issues that most Americans, not just tiny pressure groups, care about. And on that day, Democratic moderates can take the party back."

This is a big question. If Bush loses, it's a foregone conclusion that their will be a Republical crack-up. But if Kerry loses, will the Democrats do a serious reassessment of their party and jettison the Deaniac wing they way the GOP pushed out the Buchananites?
