      .... to finance their campaigns, as well as a promise of a sweet job in the corporate world if they lose.  So we have a hard-right party and a mostly fake-left party (with a few noble exceptions).

      I think Democrats could do very well in 2014 if they shifted to making Laurence's argument, and nationalized the campaign focusing on raising the minimum wage and reining in the banks.  But since it appears that they won't, and that Democrats in close races will react by pretending to be semi-Republicans, I think they aren't going to do well at all.

        Warren seen to be doing pretty well speaking truth to power.  What am I missing?  On the other hand, my experience is with local, well-modulated League of Women Voters forums, not shout-outs with rude Bill O'Reilly.
