The Sun and The Moon

Y alludes to Samuel Lubell’s theory about the in party being “the sun” and the out party “the moon.” The Democrats, he says, are stuck reacting to a Republican agenda. “We have had a couple of rough months that has given [the Democrats] an opportunity. If they don’t seize the opportunity, the moment will pass and we’ll still be in the driver’s seat. We are in a period where the Republican party is the sun party and the Democratic party is the moon party. Nothing in the last couple of months has changed that.”
