Yes, I was responding to that article.

It isn't really a question of boundaries. Prior to Reagan, a good number of Southerners were so opposed to Republicans that they'd "vote for a yellow dog" if it ran as a democrat. Yet they were conservative. So they elected fairly conservative democrats. When they went to the Republican party, after Reagan, they skewed that party more conservative, while removing the conservative pull in the Democratic Party. Thus both parties moved away from the middle.

For those of us in the middle, this is not a good thing.
