Obama and the Clintons are moderate Republicans

See this FB post and the linked article therein. My response:

Which is why even the corporate Democrats (moderate Republicans) like the DNC are horrified by Sanders, while the American people are ecstatic. I've often said, and I'll say it again agreeing with Chomsky, that today's Democratic Party are what Republicans used to be. And today's Republican Party are regressive and doomed to the dustbin of history. What must emerge is a Progressive Party to replace the Republican Party, the base of which is already the Congressional Progressive Caucus. (To which Sanders belongs, btw.) Then they and the (moderately Repubican) Democratic Party can hash it out. Not for a long time, granted. Eventually the Republican Party will go the way of the Whig Party. The bigots, xenophobes and racists will still be around; they just won't, and shouldn't be, represented.
