The Democratic Party has core values that are very much in sync with most Americans.

Conventional wisdom says that James Woods doesn't have a prayer. As an atheist, Woods relies on his message, values, supporters, and voters and not on prayers. While it is also true that the demographics are against him, his message is getting out there and that is an awesome win for atheists and for progressives.
