Back Peddling, by Jacob Levy

New Republic

The new Old Democrats (like Dean) would do well to listen to the old New Democrats (like Clinton) on issues of trade policy, says Levy. I'd like to see some new Old Old Democrats (like William Jennings Bryan) myself. After all, Grolier says that "[a]lthough he was thwarted three times in bids for the presidency, everything reasonable in his political program has since become law." That's quite a claim! Bryan would be pretty Old Old at this point, however.
