The new "Democratic Vision"
Below is "The Democratic Vision: A bold new direction for a secure America"
It's the Democratic National Committee's attempt to provide American voters with a short, easily digestible, synopsis of their goals and agenda and what sets them apart from Republicans.
1. Honest Leadership & Open Government
We will end the Republican culture of corruption and restore a government as good as the people it serves.
2. Real Security
We will protect Americans at home and lead the world by telling the truth to our troops, our citizens and our allies.
3. Energy Independence
We will create a cleaner and stronger America by reducing our dependence on foreign oil.
4. Economic Prosperity & Educational Excellence
We will create jobs that will stay in America by restoring opportunity and driving innovation.
5. A Healthcare System That Works for Everyone
We will join 36 other industrialized nations by making sure everyone has access to affordable health care.
6. Retirement Security
We will ensure than a retirement with dignity is the right and expectation of every single American.
Together, America Can Do Better.
Will this resonate with the American voter?
Were the DLC successful in identifying which issues to stress? Will it appeal to the mushy middle or independents?
And perhaps most importantly, will it trump the fear mongering and focus on "national security" of the Republicans?
What do you think?
