    I put this up as a diary.  The wording is, in fact, impartial, but he is such a skilled writer that the connotation of his support for the Democrats comes through.  For example, when he says, "A suggestion by which the Democratic Party could command the greatest public attention for its positive agenda," he refers to the creation of a campaign  agenda based the creation of a platform (positive)  versus an agenda based on criticism (negative).  However, by phrasing it in that way, it could be inferred that he himself holds any potential Democratic plan as "positive".
