"Vince Lombardi" Democrats?

Former NFL coaching great Vince Lombardi is famous for saying "Winning isn't everything. It's the only thing!" It looks like Democrats are thinking the same thing.

Representative Rahm Emanuel of Illinois, the new chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, told The New York Times: "Some people argue about old Democrats and new Democrats. I'm a Vince Lombardi Democrat. Winning is everything."

OK, he botched the quote, but least their thirst for power is now transparent, by their own admission! Gee, that kind of warm and fuzzy inspirational rhetoric is certain to get more red-staters on board, huh?

"American interests be damned...we want to win for our party first, and the country second!", they seem to be saying.
