Speaking of competence, those Democrats over at the DLC have got some skills, and recieve mad props from this Southern Liberal for the unveiling of their latest project.
I may not agree with everything inside, but I sure am glad someone in the Democratic Party is getting some serious planning done with The American Dream Initiative. This is something we've needed and needed to say for a long, long time. Here's a taste:
The American Dream Initiative is an opportunity agenda for the middle class and all who aspire to join its ranks. Our vision is straightforward and clear: to leave our children a richer, safer, smarter, and stronger nation than the one we inherited. We believe that every citizen should have the opportunity to secure the pillars of the American Dream: a college degree, a home, a secure retirement, and the chance to get ahead in a growing economy.
