  •  Yep (none)
    My social moderate/economic populist remark notwithstanding, I agree that we need a firebreather at the DNC.  I'm not yet sure about Howard Dean -- the tone he strikes with the base is great, but I'd want to be sure that he would make better choices for staff than he did in his campaign and I'd want to be sure he has the ear for the heartland.  But I strongly endorse Dick Durbin as Senate leader.  Biden, Corzine or anyone else from the East Coast won't cut it in the heartland.  And Durbin has the luxury of having America's most Democratic major metropolitan area in his backyard and can never be picked off by an unethical Republican leadership like Daschle was.
    •  What's a Social Moderate these days? (none)
      I don't think I can support a party that backs down on gay rights or abortion, even if I approve its economic message.
