    ... Christian Right so much more powerful than it was 10 years ago, is their political pragmatism. Yes, they are driven crazy fanatics. The leadership is NOT. They spew the rhetoric, but so far they have settled for 'nibbling' at abortion rights and moving no where federally on gay marriage. The leadership is been very effective at wielding their political clout.

    10 years ago, they would have been outraged that the candidate they backed was stumping for an unpopular issue like SS privatization instead of an issue like banning gay marriage which has greater support among the public. Put simply, these people understand politics. They aren't going to bite the hand that feeds them. They have a vested interest in the status quo. Do they really want to burst the bubble their lemmings are in? Abortion rights are overwhelmingly supported in America. Dobson can't eat if his followers realize this.
