From the Orlando Sentinel:
“I see a Democratic Party afraid to say they’re Democrats, who voted for the war in Iraq and voted for tax cuts for the wealthy,” said Glenn Anderson of Orlando. “Why should I remain a Democrat?”
It was a tough question. But Nelson and Obama tried to answer it.
“The Democrats at times have lost their way,” conceded Obama. “We are trying to decide what our core values are. The criterion for judging the party isn’t whether it’s to the left or right, “but are we true to our core values,” he said.
Nobody defined core values.
