No Easy Road, No Easy Code

Okay, sports fans, my official, substantive response to David "Sirota's Democrats' DaVinci Code" is now up on the American Prospect site for your reading pleasure. The bottom line is (a) there's no silver bullet for winning in "red states," and if there was, it probably wouldn't be "economic populism"; (b) "populist" means a whole lot of different things, mostly good, sometimes not so good, that cannot be conveyed simply by intoning the word; (c) demonizing "trade" without an alternative strategy for dealing with globalization is bad policy and questionable politics; and (d) abandoning Clinton's political tradition is perilous if you want to win red states, since he did and his successors didn't.
