Trumpeting Success

One thing that seems fair to say is that if you make a history of fighting with the Democrats, they have a history of paying you back. Unions? They got the right to organize. Women? The right to vote. African-Americans and people of color? Affirmative action. The working poor? A higher minimum wage. Elderly? Social security. Middle class? The Clinton Economy. Its not a bad track record. I think Democrats should spend more time speaking about this. It seems to me a fair line... Republicans talk the talk, but Democrats walk the walk. Just look at who is fighting for the GOP and what they've received in return, its pretty astonishing in my view. Then rack that up with the Democratic legacy, equally astonishing.
