    Civil Rights, our commitment to science through the launch of the Space Program, Freeing women through Roe V Wade, Pell Grants so that poor kids could afford a college education, affirmative action, the Disabilities Act....our current democrats would never be able to accomplish even one of these achievements.  They don't have the courage and truth be told, I am not sure they even believe in these things.  They believe in the markets, they believe in protecting our corporations, our banks, our insurance companies....these are the things they are committed to....are they as extreme as the Republicans, no...but they are certainly not the caliber of the Democrats that did the great things that I have listed.

      you would run for office instead of just wondering out loud if the people with the guts to run for office even give a fuck about our country.
