The Democratic party isn't going anywhere. It's stepped over the corpses of at least three major political contenders.
The future of the Republican party is pretty obvious - a division between the sane and the extremist. There is a definite National-Socialist,
anti-intellectual, totally ignorant branch of the Republican party - and it's screaming loudly and trying very hard to yank the party all the way to
The more rational people are eventually going to say screw it, let go of the tug-of-war rope, and migrate to the Democrats, leaving hte Crazy
Republicans to wallow in the mud and degenerate into squalling nothings.
A better question then would be, "who's next"? I imagine that the Democratic party would probably split off a moderate centrist-conservative party,
perhaps under the batlike wing of Joe Lieberman if he lives that long, with a more leftist, liberal party remaining as the "Democratic party"
Libertarians and greens will remain irrelevant, and may actually die without their funding from the RNC.
