A Blueprint

I really like Andrew Sullivan’s approach to writing about the political ramifications of what’s happening in the world today. Each Friday, I peruse his New York magazine column looking for a turn of a phrase or an interesting insight. In today’s column I found this:

If the Democrats want to fight the next election on the need for a radical rebalancing of the economy in favor of the middle and working class, for massive investment in new green technology, for higher taxes on the superrich, and for health-care security for all Americans, they can win.

I think these are the general policy positions for nearly all of the Democrat candidates running for President. It is nice to see it wrapped up in a perfect little 50 word sentence though.
