Joshua Katz: A Message From the CT Delegation Chair

From an article sent to the LP-CT opinions list:

There can be no denying that our party is deeply divided.  In fact, we’re so divided that the factions cannot even agree about the nature of our disagreement.  One side believes that we differ, mostly along the same fault lines, on two issues. … Read more ...
