Interesting thought ...

... but I'd guess impact would be small.

WASHINGTON — A group of liberal bloggers said it was teaming up with organized labor and MoveOn.org to form a political action committee that would seek to push the Democratic Party further to the left.

Soliciting donations from their readers, the bloggers said they were planning to recruit liberal candidates to challenge more centrist Democrats currently in Congress.

In this vein, with a local angle, it's worth taking a look at the National Journal's ranking of senators on liberal and conservative issues. It was sent along to me by a Republican campaigner without comment. In summary. Sen. Blanche Lincoln, often seared by the left here, isn't too liberal by Democratic Party standards, but not as conservative as the lefty flamethrowers would have you believe. About right for Arkansas, in other words.
