    is required. I don't think that it is likely possible to just roll the clock back to the days of the new deal. We live in a different world. One of the major differences is that it is much more globalized and that isn't going to be reversed. All the Democrats as a party have to offer is slowing the progress of the neoliberal tectonic shift.

    •  We surrendered to globalization (8+ / 0-)

      What is the point of the Imperial Empire if all we do is fight primitive tribes in Afghan caves while we surrender the manufacturing, IT and every other sector to Asia?  

      At best and with zero commitment all we hear is "jobs", as if that describes the problem of sustaining a labor environment capable of sustaining a middle class.  

      I agree we can't be stuck in the New Deal but we sure don't have that 21st century New Direction.  Instead, we're going to revisit the 1990's because don't stop thinking about yesterday, it will soon be here.
