    The Democratic rift over entitlements deepened this week as a top party contender for governor in Pennsylvania came under fire from liberals after a think tank of which she is co-chairwoman criticized economic-populism messages of Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and New York Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio.

    Liberals demanded that gubernatorial candidate Allyson Y. Schwartz cut her ties with Third Way after two of its top officials wrote an op-ed criticizing Ms. Warren and Mr. de Blasio by name, saying they are pushing a “‘we can have it all’ fantasy.”

    The activist groups Democracy for America and Progressive Change Campaign Committee pounced, demanding that Mrs. Schwartz, who is now a member of the U.S. House, relinquish her position as honorary co-chairwoman of Third Way.

    One of her rivals in the Pennsylvania governor’s race issued the same challenge.

    The Schwartz campaign responded by saying the congresswoman “obviously disagrees with what was written” and “thinks what they wrote was outrageous.”

    The squabble marks the beginning of a fight over the direction of his party as it prepares for the 2016 elections and a new leader.

    The pie-in-the-sky dreams of the Democratic Party are going to come crashing down in flames any day now, and they are going to demand the destruction of those in their midst who warned them it was going to happen. How stupid is that?
