    A contradiction in terms these days.

    In any event, demanding progressive purity is not likely to win us a Senate seat in South Dakota.  And before anyone starts citing George McGovern as a counterexample, it should be remembered that when he was first elected Senator in 1962 he did not have the same sort of image as he would as a national candidate a decade later, but rather was seen as a populist focused on agriculture and veterans issues, not as a antiwar cultural liberal.  And he was always on somewhat shaky political ground in the state; he lost it when running for President and eventually lost his Senate seat.
