Molly Ivins is fed up with D.C. Democrats

The straight-talking oracle of Texas is calling for a grass-roots revolution in the party, and it doesn't start with anyone with a Washington phone number. Here's a sample:
As usual, the Democrats have forty good issues on their side and want to run on thirty-nine of them. Here are three they should stick to:
1) Iraq is making terrorism worse; it’s a breeding ground. We need to extricate ourselves as soon as possible. We are not helping the Iraqis by staying.
2) Full public financing of campaigns so as to drive the moneylenders from the halls of Washington.
3) Single-payer health insurance.
Molly's piece is in the March issue of The Progressive. Buy it or read it here, but seriously think about what she's saying.

Meanwhile, with our third anniversary in Iraq close upon us, President Bush talks about what he's trying to accomplish.
