    Overton Window way, if for nothing else.

    Unfortunately, they tend to come across as just slightly unhinged (Dennis Kucinich), of the past (Mike Gravel), or massively self-serving (John Edwards).

    Not sure how to solve this problem.  I'd step into the void, but I'd make the people mentioned above look like raving non-lunatics by comparison.

      I would love to run for office as an old fashioned liberal, economic populist.  I am 29 and I know most of my friends that haven't been compromised by conservative thought would react incredibly positive to the messages of the last century liberals that did so much good for this country.  

      I really feel like there is a serious gap there waiting to be filled by the correct candidates.
