    The Democratic Party is in critical condition because its leaders--including Bill Clinton--ignored the grass roots and relied on charismatic leadership at the top of the ticket.

    What we need is a concerted, long-term effort to build a farm team, a noise machine to counter the Right, and a network of think tanks and publications like the conservatives and libertarians have established. Charisma--and I seriously question whether Hillary has it--is no substitute for the real work of rebuilding the party.
