    ...in the current rhetorical landscape.

    Lakoff used the terms to describe. He DOES NOT suggest that we use "Nurturing family" as some bumper sticker or rallying cry. Part of what he's getting at is our coming to grips with Conventional Wisdom assumptions that, as the Big Dog inelegantly but accurately suggested "Strong and wrong trumps weak and right."

    Our strength as a nation has always been our numbers and our capacity to do great things as a people. That gets lost when we allow ourselves to be measured only and exclusively by the yardstick that the Financial Elites prefer.

    When you are right you cannot be too radical; when you are wrong, you cannot be too conservative. --Martin Luther King Jr.
