Shakespeare's Sister nails it

On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King told the country that he had a dream. It’s time for the American Left to announce that it has a vision—a vision of an America in which every American can realize his or her dream, whether that dream is to find a job, free oneself of the chains of poverty, get married, go to college, or take advantage of any of the other opportunities that ought to be available to every citizen of this nation. Not everyone announces his or her dream in such stirring style as did the Reverend King, but everyone does have a dream, and our passionate, authentic vision must be that every person has the same chance to make it reality.

It is a national conversation waiting to be had, and it is ours for the taking, if only we will commit ourselves to having it.

It is not enough to watch from a safe distance as the Repugs explode. If the Dems want to turn their loss into something meaningful, somebody needs to start explaining what we stand for, and start now.
