Newsflash: Democrats discover their own values. I wonder if they even recognize them?
The Washington Post’s Politics Blog says that the selection of Virginia Governor Tim Kaine to give the Democratic Party’s response to Bush’s State of the Union is indicative of a shift in the Dems strategy: “The brilliance of the Virginia campaign was when you stand up for what you believe in and talk about it from your values center it can inoculate you from Republican attacks.”
Hard to say if this is a real shift, or just insider spin. But anyway I think it’s a baby step in the right direction.
