    I agree wholeheartedly with the thrust of your diary. General themes such as economic populism and universal healthcare should not be left behind. Hanging our hats on such things as the fact that bin Laden has not been captured is "putting our eggs all in one basket" and too risky. It is in essence "building a house of cards" that can easily be destroyed.

      The message needs to be framed in terms of how we want the country to look, what we want, not what we're against.  A society with both community and personal responsibility.  Firm public support for public schools and colleges, and the best teaching we can find.  Communities where people care enough to volunteer to improve things.  Fair markets and a fair tax system that fully funds the programs that Americans want. Curbs on the excesses and gross inequalities of capitalism while ensuring oppportunities for all. An environment we can be proud to leave for our children.  Safe and prosperous communities.  A foreign policy that works with other countries to ensure a safer world.

      I really liked Dean's speech on a new contract for American families, and think that is a good cornerstone for the campaign.  And don't overcomplicate things.
