Maybe. But yes, since they're in power, the differences are pretty hidden. The GOP had all of the current divisions under Bush, but kept it pretty tied up until Bush's amnesty program. After that the box was open.
Though I've always considered the DLC to be the one real fracture in the Democratic party, and that crowd had vanished by 2008. The median Democrat seems pretty far leftward of the old DLC standard.
