Tom Hartmann (there I go again) said that it makes a lot more sense to reform existing parties than it does to form splinter parties, and that due to the electoral college, no more than two parties will ever work in the United States. He made the point that it is to the benefit of Democrats everywhere to work to create a sane adversarial party so that Democrats can battle policy choices, rather than dyed-in-the-wool insanity.
