    stick harder on economic issues than social issues.

    I'm not a 'free' trade skeptic for partisan reasons. I'm skeptical as to the impacts of these policies on our economy.

    There may be a successful way to make the best of some of our agreements.

    I'm no economist, but i'm no fan of supply-side economics and in reality, free trade isn't free. It does cost something. The catch is, is it costing the least that is plausible, or are we getting screwed.

      If people call Dems 'republican lite' but still vote for them, I don't really care. In some ways, our positions should be Republican lite. It's not a matter of lacking new ideas. There are just some really basic simple policy issues that need to be addressed and both parties realize that. So solving those problems should still be on our agenda even if its on the GOP's too. What voters need to be shown is the positive and inclusive form our policies will take. They need to see the democrats embracing policies that look towards the future represent commonsense solutions.
