11. What Dean is doing is great!
Talking to the people. Reminding them that they have the power and elect the government. It seems to me that most people have forgotten this.

Also, working from the bottom up to encourage people to run for local offices is an excellent strategy. With Dems in positions in the lower tiers of government, they have a chance to be more influential on the practical day-to-day administration of the country. This could filter up by getting people involved. It won't happen overnight, but the local level is the only level where people can feel involved and empowered. And if people want to have a good life, they have to take some responsibility and participate, instead of letting Washington make all the decisions.

Way to go Dean!
