18. Dean articulates a position that many Americans have been seeking.
Edited on Wed Jan-28-04 11:38 AM by MissMarple
At least in my opinion. The far left and the far right are becoming increasingly moribund. The old paradigm that Gephardt and Kerry have been a part of is falling apart. Whether it is liberal conservative or conservative liberal, the center can combine the best of both visions. The conservative far right's adoration of unregulated capitalism is ruining the country as much as a runaway permissive welfare state could. We need a balance and we need some common sense, and sooner rather than later.

All of the potential candidates have contributed valuable ideas and perspectives to the small "d" democratic debate. I hope they can continue to do so. If we don't take care of working class America and promote a responsible expression of capitalism, we all know there will be dark days ahead.

And on edit: I don't think the grassroots movement gathering around Dean and Kucinich, and Sharpton and Mosely-Braun will disappear. Its' time is coming.
