“Why I’m Not Running For the Senate” by Harold Ford Jr (TIMES, 3/2/10)


          Good news that New York will be spared the candidacy of another Blue Dog who claims to be an “independent Democrat.” The people of the state don’t need this carpetbagger and second generation politico who won’t be independent of Wall Street influence.

          New York needs what most of the states need, a government program that will put millions of people back to work. If the unemployment level remains at the current level or gets worse, there can be no recovery of the economy.

          It is time for progressive candidates for office to acknowledge the fact that the United States is experiencing a depression whose major victims are working people. Another “new deal” is what the Democratic Party should be implementing. Real action to remedy the situation is the order of the day; not empty words which are forgotten after the vote has been tallied.
