Tought provoking. If the Democrat party really is pure clientilism - and Mr Cost convincingly demonstrates this to be so - then his conclusion is difficult to avoid: That today's Democrat Party is unable to govern for the national interest as it meets its obligations to its clients, and may be unable to do so for the foreseeable future. This conclusion is supported by swtiches by notable pols from the Dem to the GOP - Zell Miller, Artur Davis, etc.
