And yet, your buddy Rogue is a fan of Wikipedia, it's his bible. Could he be wrong? So, when we talk Democrats and their party, it's no longer the Democratic party, but the Democrat party. I see. Did you tell the media about this, NBC, CBS, PBS, FoxNews.com , ABC, all the newspapers,'cuz they sure as hell call it the Democratic party. Let's see.<quoted text>
Sorry Jacques, I don't accept Wikipedia as a legitimate source.
Democrats believe that we're greater together than we are on our own—that this country succeeds when everyone gets a fair shot, when everyone does their fair share, when everyone plays by the same rules. Our party, led by President Obama, is focused on building an economy that lasts—an economy that lifts up all Americans.
That's why Democrats are working to advance issues like job creation, education, health care, and clean energy—and you'll find all the information you need on these important issues right here on Democrats.org .

Policy and structure
Democratic Party, in the United States, one of the two major political parties, the other being the Republican Party.
The Democratic Party has changed significantly during its more than two centuries of existence. During the 19th century the party supported or tolerated slavery, and it opposed civil rights reforms after the Civil War in order to retain the support of Southern voters. By the mid-20th century it had undergone a dramatic ideological realignment and reinvented itself as a party supporting organized labour, the civil rights of minorities, and progressive reform. Since President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal of the 1930s, the party has also tended to favour greater government intervention in the economy and to oppose government intervention in the private, noneconomic affairs of citizens. The logo of the Democratic Party, the donkey, was popularized by cartoonist Thomas Nast in the 1870s; though widely used, it has never been officially adopted by the party.
