    The chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee brushed off various members' ads touting opposition to President Obama and Speakers Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), saying that it simply shows the party is a big tent unlike the right.

    On CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday, Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) was asked about a variety of the ads, including one from Rep. Bobby Bright (D-Ala.) boasting that he voted with Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) 80 percent of the time.

    "We're very proud of the fact that we have an ideologically diverse caucus," Van Hollen said. "As opposed to on the other side where you have this ideological purity test," he added, saying the Republican Party litmus test had been moved even further to the right by the Tea Party movement.

    "We have a big tent, and we're problem solvers," he said. "And that is, I think, what voters are looking for."

    Well, that one way to look at it. Party Dems are running away from Obama and Nancy and this guy says the glass is half full, whereas most will say the glass is cracked.
