I think that hope, that ability to envision, to imagine a better way, and then to apply yourself to it, is the way to climb out of a hole, is the way to build a better life, is the way to build a better community and a better country.
We believe that in times like these we should turn to each other, not on each other. We believe that government has a role to play, not in solving every problem in everybody's life but in helping people help themselves to the American dream. That's what Democrats believe.
We have drained common sense out of our politics. The more we focus on tactics and games, the more good people check out and give up.
We need a government that is what we are at our best. Smart, efficient, pragmatic and compassionate.
