The Free World's Leader Once More?
The socially conservative economic populists who clinched the American Congressional Elections for the Democrats should put up a candidate for the Democratic Party's Presidential nomination, making it clear that (s)he will be run with or without the Party's approval. And, of course, they should follow through if necessary. Among much else, this would represent a return to real American leadership in the world, causing long-overdue political earthquakes across Europe, Canada and the Antipodes, and keeping the White House keys out of the hands of the massively corporate-sponsored longstanding captain of the cheer-leading squad for the Washington Warmongers.
