The Democratic Party on its way to winning the popular vote in 5 of the last 6 elections. Think about that. More people in this country chose the left over the right in every election but one since 1992.
No more can anyone say that this is a center-right country. We are a center-left nation. The results of presidential elections over the past twenty years make that perfectly clear.
Let's make it clear that Democratic policies and priorities are the mainstream of America. Americans lean left. There is a lot more that we can say about this election, but that is one key takeaway. Let's shout it from the rooftops.
PS-Please check out my new book Obama's America: A Transformative Vision of Our National Identity, published last month by Potomac Books, where I discuss Barack Obama's ideas on racial, ethnic, and national identity in detail, and contrast his inclusive vision to language coming from Mitt Romney, Rush Limbaugh and (some) others on the right.
