  •  Third Way is right about one thing: (4+ / 0-)

    It is very hard to be both a populist and have a sunny view of America's future.  It's difficult to avoid coming across as angry when you advocate for a populist outlook, and really, why wouldn't populists be angry these days?

    Nonetheless, Barack Obama manages to pull it off.  Look at yesterday's speech for an example.

    I think that, without realizing it, Third Way cut right to the heart of Obama's political success.

    Democrats across the country should take notes.

    Art is the handmaid of human good.
