“The old structures have been eroding, ever since we knocked Joe Lieberman out of the Democratic Party in 2006,” he said. “We've only gotten more sophisticated in the subsequent years, while insurgents on the right have joined the party.

Well said, and quite right (no pun intended). Read the whole Politico piece; it's likely causing hives to break out all over institutional D.C.
