    and frankly, the GOP needs a person like that too. Really the only two people they have had like that are Reagan and W. People who can tell compelling narratives that connect people's everyday experiences to a political program.

    This is why it is not about moving right or left for Democrats. It is about having a narrative. And not going on about "prescription drug benefits" and the like.

    The United States has a conservative political culture defending a liberal heritage. The modern Republican Party's problem is that it is neither.

      "This is why it is not about moving right or left for Democrats. It is about having a narrative. And not going on about "prescription drug benefits" and the like."

      There a fuzzy line between issues and narrative.

      Democratic issues need to form the underpinning of the narrative.

      The lyrics are fine.  It's the music that was fucked up this year.
