Sarandon, the soul of the Democratic party

It's hard for me to take her seriously, but Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins may actually be the mainstream of today's Democratic party. That doesn't bode well for Hillary:
Susan Sarandon, longtime liberal maven and in talks to play peace activist Cindy Sheehan in a film, is irked by another liberal maven: Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. The Hollywood actress doesn't think the New York Democrat lives up to her expectations.

"I find Hillary Clinton to be a great disappointment," Miss Sarandon told More magazine, for publication today.

"She seems to be a very bright woman. I've met her. But she's lost her progressive following because of her caution and centrist approach. It bothers me when she voted for the war," Miss Sarandon said.
I'm getting to the point where I think if something doesn't bode well for Hillary, it doesn't bode well for the Democratic party. I still loathe Hillary, but she has been trying to attach herself to the more sane segment of Democratic voters. The far left has become large and influential enough that they effectively split the party and reduce the electability of its candidates. As it pertains to Hillary, they'll either pull her left and cost her with regular Democrats, or she'll continue to court the center and lose her money and support on the far left, which has plenty of wealth like Sarandon's.
