John McCain's electoral pandering has opened David Broder's eyes to a whole 'nother America. (Who knew?)
But what is incontestable is the fact that McCain sees the need for Republicans to reach beyond their past comfort level and engage the many Americans who have every reason to doubt they are anywhere on the GOP agenda. To many of those struggling to survive, who are accustomed to being ignored, if not exploited, the Bush administration's blindness to the plight of the residents of New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina hit is all too typical of the Republicans' mind-set.So how can a new executive leader of the federal government best serve these unlucky duckies?
...McCain condemned the performance of the Bush administration and offered his own free-market ideas for creating more jobs, improved schools and better health care.There's nothing a little fine-tuning at the sausage factory can't fix.
