TheGodBen said the modern Democratic Party was centrist.
That could depend on which specific and current Democrats in power we're referring to.
Obama is the President and leader of the Democratic party, and he is a centrist. Sure, there are some left-wing Democrats, and some could be described as being just as loony as the Tea party but in a different way, but those people don't have as much influence or control over the Democratic party as the Tea party do over the Republican party.

Also keep in mind that I view American politics from a European perspective, and in Europe the Democrats would be a centre/centre-right party while Republicans would be right/far-right.
Being in Europe as well I would tend to agree with that. Democrats=centre/centre right. Republican's = right.
