Time for change

Posted By on Mon, Nov 5, 2007 at 5:39 AM

Interesting Paul Krugman. It refers to poll findings about how ready the U.S. is for a change:

The public wants change. “If Americans have ever been angrier with the state of the country,” begins a new strategy memo from the polling organization Democracy Corps, “we have not witnessed it.”

Nor is the demand for change solely about Iraq: there has been a strong revival of economic populism. Democracy Corps asked those who believe America is on the wrong track to choose phrases that best described their views of what’s gone wrong. The most commonly chosen were “Big businesses get whatever they want in Washington” and “Leaders have forgotten the middle class.”

The question: Has the Democratic Party gotten the message or is it too in thrall of special interests to move effectively? (No, Krugman says, the Republicans and Democrats, however flawed, are still far from indistinguishable.)
