Advice for the Democrats

Filed under: Not Tech, Politics — Chris @ 4:14 pm

Don’t screw this up. Be the party of competence.* You’ve got to be more Catholic than the Pope (I’m not sure who the Pope is in this metaphor): pass a balanced budget without egregiously raising taxes, don’t climb into bed with the lobbyists, and forgo earmarks for at least one election cycle. And please just sit out the culture wars: show people you can engage the real issues directly, without throwing red meat to your base.

Good luck! I love you! (For now!)

* I don’t mean run as the Party of Competence (*cough* Dukakis)—just be the party of competence.
