The polls suggest we are nearing the end of the Bush era. But conservative scandal and
failure won't lead to a serious progressive resurgence as long as Democrats remain stuck
in short-term tactical thinking. Republicans and the tame-dog media tell us, ad nauseam,
that Democrats have no new ideas. Enough! Tough, bold, important ideas are plentiful--
and it's time to start talking about them, to stake out serious positions and to demand
action. No, they can't all be achieved right away.
