  •  I know lots of progressive Dems in Texas (6+ / 0-)

    My buddy Annise Parker, Mayor of Houston is one of them. Bob Lanier was OK too though a bit more of a good ol' boy, he knew how to court the LGBT vote which is very important in Houston elections.

    Texas has lots of conservadems too but Texas is hardly alone in that. Everyone thinks of Massachusetts as being "liberal" but what it really is is a one-party state, the result of which is that there are many, many conservative Dems in Massachusetts. Our 2nd District congressman here in Maine is a conservative Democrat (I don't live in his district though). Texas is hardly alone in having Democrats of all stripes. Unlike Mass or Maine though, Democrats in Texas don't hold any powerful offices. That's what Texas has to change.

    Santorum: Man on Dog; Romney: Dog on Car. Mrs. Romney: Fraud on Horse.
