1. Not Following The Clinton Tradition, I Hope?
As Governor of Arkansas, the Big Dawg flew home from the 1992 campaign trail to preside over the execution of a mentally retarded (IQ roughly 70)prisoner. I hope that Deval isn't planning on this kind of stuff.

3. I'd like to see Democrats be "smart on crime," not "tough on crime"
End the drug war.

Increase social spending.

Go back to the rehabilitative function of imprisonment.

Then we wouldn't need to spend money on more police.

6. I think of about a dozen conservatives who ought to be arrested RIGHT NOW.

Will that burnish our "tough on crime" credentials?
