Dems need new leaders


To the Editor:

We Democrats lost the 2002 elections nationally and here in Michigan because we utterly lack a unifying philosophy (or "message").

Once the party of civil rights and economic opportunity, we now are the go-along, get-along followers of Bill Clinton and Dick Gephardt, unable to publicly disavow a popular president's unwise domestic agenda for fear of appearing unpatriotic.

We desperately need to follow new leadership and to stake out positions based upon principle, not pragmatism.

It is vital that we disavow Clinton's legacy as dishonest and cynical. We must find new public servants who are motivated by altruism, not sound bites.

Who are they? Sadly, at the moment, I couldn't say!
