THE RICOCHET EFFECT

Dick Morris has hit on something in his NYPost op-ed column.

His thesis is that the party not in possession of the Oval Office tends to be dominated by its extremists. E.g., it explains McGovern, Dukakis and Newt Gingrich. And it explains the current crop of Dems (save Lieberman) who are a lot more leftist than Clinton.

He ends by saying:

It will be interesting to see how soon the Democrats wake up and realize that they can't let their party be hijacked by the left without writing off the general election. But the wake-up call is unlikely to come until after Bush is safely re-elected.
