Dems lost because they ran against their core principles

Kudos to Dan Rodricks for his big-picture analysis of the recent election ("Dan Rodricks: 'Never been so ambivalent about an election,'" Nov. 5).

He is surely right when he says that both political parties now "cater to the corporate class and the rest of us are merely bystanders."

The Democrats, having repeatedly trended to the right lest they be perceived as too "liberal," have forgotten what they once stood for.

In essence, they have become weak Republicans, feeding at the same trough but failing to understand that strong Republicans will beat weak Republicans every time.
