Last week "This American Life" (radio program) produced a pretty accurate description of NYC "machine" franchise operations. Political power appears decentralized, or "democratized," to whomsoever is capable of manufacturing capital and labor are barriers to "legitimate" candidacy for office. The role of civic groups --beyond the bounds of the DNC-- is kind of perverse.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
