Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Cats can't be herded so that's no likely to happen soon.

I'd argue that categorizing it as "not likely" is too generous.  There's too much diversity of opinion in the blogosphere for it to act in unison the way (say) the traditional press can with a meme.  It also can't become a voting/funding bloc outside of primaries, because it's not a swing group between the two parties.  What it can do is primary the shitty politicians in an effort to get less-shitty politicians.

This will ultimately prove a good lesson for them, though.  Sitting around dreaming of politicians who are going to do whatever they want is laughably stupid.  They need to figure out how to hold Obama's feet to the fire.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
