It's an unvarnished good news story that the DLC is closing up shop. The effort by corporate lobbyists to shift the Democratic party to the right was far too succesful, which set in place a lot of the deregulation that helped the economic crisis occur. That's the DLC legacy.

Sadly, right wing voodoo economics still exists in the Democratic party with the work of Third Way, whose goal is basically the same as the DLC: Turn the Democratic party into Republican-lite.
