The Political "Civil War" Is a Democrat One, Not A GOP One

Byron York weighs in:

"A few days ago, the left-wing activist group began sending out emails seeking contributions to fund primary challenges against any Democratic senator who does not fully support "health care reform with a public option." Now there's an update: MoveOn executive director Justin Ruben says the group has raised $3,578,117 for the project and is thinking of new ways to punish errant Democratic lawmakers."

NY's 23 CD race exposed and clarified the wide divide remaining between the establishment GOP and movement conservatives - but it's one that is both self-contained and ultimately resolvable.  But the NJ and VA GOP victories may well have sparked an intractable civil war within the Democrat party.
