Paul Hackett was on the Colbert Report last night to talk about such things as Iraq and why he dropped out of the Senate race this year. Check it out.
I got to say Paul brings up a great point and is a point that is echoed in Crashing the Gate – that the party wants you to toll the party line. Democrats need to embrace being a party of different ideas and visions and working together to achieve as many of those ideas for a better America. This will greatly improve the perception of the Democratic Party and encourage more voters to turn to them. As it is now, the Democrats follow the Republican line of wanting candidates to support 100% of their platform. Can a country as diverse as America be divided into only two political lines of thinking? The simple answer is no.
