Personally I can think of a couple of counter points. But the more relevant fact is that actual political operatives seem to disagree.
I am too much of a cynic to not believe that whatever the democratic merits (small d) if dems are pretty much fer and repubs agin, each must be taking a position to their advantage.
BB's article seems pretty good to me. It may not hold water, but I can attest, reading your links, I would rather be under his in a rainstorm.
