I think that's right, but it is the reasonable position - not that of a base. Candidates have to walk that weird line between satisfying the base by not appearing to compromise on agenda, while doing the difficult work of building coalitions and making themselves stomachable(?) to mainstream America. I think the successful ones are probably those who can pull this off.
