Barack Obama took the stage to help the upcoming campaign of Sen. Bill Nelson at one of Nelson’s town-hall meetings. During the meeting, the first question was this:

“I see a Democratic Party afraid to say they’re Democrats, who voted for the war in Iraq and voted for tax cuts for the wealthy,” said Glenn Anderson of Orlando. “Why should I remain a Democrat?”

It was a tough question. But Nelson and Obama tried to answer it.

“The Democrats at times have lost their way,” conceded Obama. “We are trying to decide what our core values are.”

The criterion for judging the party isn’t whether it’s to the left or right, “but are we true to our core values,” he said.

The key statement immediately follows this.

Nobody defined core values.

You would think that as long as Democrats have been around that they’d have figured out what their core values are by now. They’ve been losing power in Washington and across America for years, but still haven’t decided what they stand for. Mr. Anderson, the questioner, seems to think they should stand for leaving terrorist havens alone and taxing ourselves into oblivion. Doesn’t sound like a winning strategy to me.
