Howard Dean: A New President in 2008

Above all the other Democratic candidates Howard Dean has demonstrated a lasting commitment to the progressive ideals that 48 percent of Americans hold dear. When other Democratic politicians urge a pathetic, cowardly agenda of collaboration with the Republican elites in Washington D.C., Howard Dean is calling upon progressive America to hold true to its ideals.

In a December 2004 speech, Howard Dean spoke eloquently of the need for a principled progressive resistance to the Republican agenda:

Here in Washington, it seems that after every losing election, there’s a consensus reached among decision-makers in the Democratic Party is that the way to win is to be more like Republicans.

I suppose you could call that philosophy: if you didn’t beat ‘em, join them.

I’m not one for making predictions – but if we accept that philosophy this time around, another Democrat will be standing here in four years giving this same speech. we cannot win by being “Republican-lite.” We’ve tried it; it doesn’t work…

There’s only one thing Republican power brokers want more than for us to lurch to the left – and that’s for us to lurch to the right.

What they fear most is that we may really begin fighting for what we believe – the fiscally responsible, socially progressive values for which Democrats have always stood and fought.

I’ll give this to Republicans. They know the America they want. They want a government so small that, in the words of one prominent Republican, it can be drowned in a bathtub…

We need to be able to say strongly, firmly, and proudly what we believe, because we are what we believe.

Howard Dean is right. He was right when he called upon the Democratic Party to celebrate its grassroots activists in 2004, and he’s right when he says it now. It hasn't been since the days of Harry S. Truman that a president said it so powerfully. Perhaps it's time for an American president to say these words again.
