The Democratic contenders prepare to beat the living snot out of each other over who kisses more Left wing ass. Frankly, I don't understand what the point of the primary process is. Its a pointlessly long, drawn out pissing match that causes enormous dissension and infighting. Even worse, it hands control of the party over to its unrepresentative extremist wings who can turn out dedicated--i.e. ideologically fanatical--voters. In other words, its a recipie for general election suicide. There has got to be a better way, and the Democrats had better find it if they want to win an election any time in the near future.
