Mr. President, (4+ / 0-)
I'm writing an article today about tenure and academic freedom. It is awful
to see scientific research challenged on religious and political grounds.
We see suppression of research on birth control and global warming, and the
refusal to fund vital stem cell research.
The fact that some science in the US is now shaped by religious and
political concerns involves several of your questions, and maybe you could
also discuss it here.
I'm happy to contribute to Jack's campaign.

These include the need for candidates to have great sums of money (I had practically none), a need to defend against negative advertising (Ford, Reagan and I just referred to each other as "my distinguished opponent), and a need to overcome extreme partisan divisions (I relied heavily on moderate Republicans in the Congress).
Question: Blue Staters in Red States? (24+ / 0-)
Could you give some frank advice about the best way for Democrats in firmly 'blue' states to help win back the red states?
Many of us will have the opportunity to volunteer, donate, write, etc. Some practical suggestions from you would be incredibly valuable to the Daily Kos community and to idealistic dedicatd Democrats across America.

This is not a conflict between liberals and conservatives or even between Democrats and Republicans. The unprecedented changes in policy are from those of Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, Dwight Eisenhower, and also, of course, from those of Democratic presidents.
