The article reports on the move of Netroots Democrats in the U.S. to support incumbent Democrats in the February 2008 primaries. It is stated that the group will support House Democrats Albert Wynn and Daniel Lipinski, since they believe that the two are cozy with Republicans. It is further mentioned that Wynn's and Lipinski's heavily blue districts deserve congressmen who are closer to the Democratic base on issues like withdrawing from Iraq.
