In his speech to the Democratic National Convention last night, John Edwards told the hypothetical story of a woman, sitting at her kitchen table, unable to make ends meet while her husband was away in Iraq.

She thinks she’s alone. But tonight in this hall and in your homes — you know what? She’s got a lot of friends. We want her to know that we hear her. And it’s time to bring opportunity and an equal chance to her door.

The typical Democrat translation of that is, we need bigger government to help her. But is that the best way to do it? What about private charities; don’t they do a better job? And if all those folks in the hall are her friends, what have they done for her lately? Are they more likely to help out than, say, Republicans?

The answers to these questions can be found in this installment of “Considerettes Radio”. Bill Bennett and I discuss the difference between the Democrats’ and the Republicans’ definition of “compassion”.
