Warner's Longstanding Vacation from the Mainstream

Presidential hopefuls Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY), Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN), Gov. Tom Vilsack (D-IA), and Gov. Bill Richardson (D-NM) address the centrist Democratic Leadership Council today at its annual conference in Denver.

Not there? Netroots favorite Gov. Mark Warner, who's on a "longstanding vacation."

That vacation, however, seems to be from the mainstream of the Democratic Party. Warner's doing everything he can to court the netroots, who don't much like the DLC -- thus, he's letting them dictate that he stay away. Of course, our last Democratic president was a centrist, not an extremist, last time I checked.
