In the Blue Doghouse

I recently observed that the conservative Southern Democrat was making a comeback as Democrats in general have seen their fortunes rise and the national party has decided it likes winning better than social-issues litmus tests. The question is how enduring this comeback will be, especially once liberals no longer feel they need right-leaning Democrats to pad their majorities. If this Glenn Greenwald piece essentially calling for a purge of the Blue Dogs — and defining that term broadly enough to include liberal hawks — is any indication, folks like Travis Childers had better watch their back.

I should add that from a liberal perspective, Greenwald’s objections to the Blue Dogs make perfect sense. Conservatives would have equal reason to be concerned if the Republican Party developed a strategy of retaking Congress by electing Chris Shays clones in the Northeast. (Well, that would require the GOP to have a strategy, so it is purely hypothetical, but you get the idea.)
