The other guy
We’ve all seen it in our work lives, but now that strategy seems to be working for Governor Gray Davis in the broader political arena. In published reports last week, Davis’ pollster said the governor’s image had improved because he was able to cast the state’s energy problems “in a partisan light” and blame it on President Bush’s opposition to price caps. Government-by-polling is a growing disease, and certainly mainstream Democrats such as former President Clinton and Governor Davis watch the polls too closely.
What they ought to do is concentrate on their vision and opportunities for direct action. To help out we offer up “Power to the people” on page 20, which shows us that options and solutions are out there. The leaders should quit pointing fingers and start to feel better when looking in the mirror.
