Back To Reality for Tennessee Democrats
column calls Tennessee Democrats back to reality
after their "Jackson Day" dinner with Bill Clinton and Al Gore:
Democratic unity does occur-when voting with Republicans in the Legislature. Major portions of the Republican agenda this past session frequently passed with 18, 19, 20 Democratic votes or more, leaving a 20-22 vote liberal rump as the holdouts. The Democrats crooning about "unity" and decrying the conservative Republican agenda need to remember that much of it passed with Democratic votes.
