    . . .concerned me for a long time:  that, at bottom, the two parties--beholden as they both are to corporate interests--are only marginally different.

    Oh, for a new and truly progressive party, led by an inspired man or woman of the people, and willing to respect the Constitution! If the Democrats nominate Hillary in '08, methinks we'll have that splinter party in short order.

    The time is now. Damn it, the time is ALWAYS now!

      In Washington, your point about the marginal difference between Republicans and Democrats is becoming more true.  In many ways, the Republicans vs. Democrats show is one more stylized drama, akin to shadows of puppets on a screen in Balinese drama, brought to you by GE and NewsCorp, TimeWarner and Disney.  

      Fortunately, our vestigial democratic process still allows for some input from the Great Unwashed.  The Democratic party, if it is to become anything other than the traditional punching bags of the permanent ruling corporatist party, will have to breathe some of the energy from outside Washington in order to renew itself.

      If it cannot do so, we may have to resort to a new, true grassroots populist movement to save our democracy.

      Could lead this new party, if he would.
