The Democratic Party (as a party) runs the very real risk of
experiencing the same fate as the Whigs (forerunners to the Repukes) in the 1850s: splintering along sectional and\or ideolgoical grounds. In the four days I have spent at Occupy Los Angeles (in true-blue California), I heard not one word of support for Obama or the Democratic Party (or for the Repukes either). There was more support at OLA for the Revolutionary Communist Party, for God's sake, judging from foot traffic at the RCP's booth.
