Some Numbers...

President Bush's approval rating, as of May 18, 2006?

29%

This makes him one of the most unpopular presidents in the history of polling, now behind only Jimmy Carter and Richard Nixon (he tied with his father when he reached 29%). With Democrats favored over Republicans by fully fourteen percentage points in the polls and the election still six months away, our unfortunate President could well find himself with the lowest approval ratings ever recorded.

Yeah, his poll numbers are pretty low (though I believe they have risen since these numbers), but still the Democrats (and I'm one of them) have no message. What I would like to see us do is make a committment to five or (at very most) ten principles and ideas which we will put into action upon a Democrat election. What ten things do Democrats stand for? More importantly, what ten things can Democrats unite on and work for together as a group?

If we answer that question well, then we have a chance not only of taking back the House and Senate, but of actually moving the country forward after so many years of veering horribly off course.
