Philip could you please point out the principle differences between the present policies of SF and the CPN(Maoist)?

The CPN(Maoist) is entering parliamentarian politics, has laid down its arms, put them under United Nations supervision and is about to enter a government under the leadership of the leading bourgeois party, the Nepali Congress. 

As for hobnobbing with corporate America and bourgeois politicians: that is was Prachanda the leader of the CPN(Maoist) did at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit:
Other speakers included: Rudy Giuliani, Peter Mandelson, Jack Straw and Michael Eisner. Hardly a meeting of revolutionaries. Looks to me pretty much the same to what Gerry Adams does. 

I am too far from both places to say they are sell-outs, but I do not see the principal difference between the two.
