"Third Way" Democrats

Does no one by myself see the inevitability of the transformation of the Democratic party? With brilliant and progressive leaders such as Evan Bayh, in addition to strong and respected advocates like Jim Wallis, why aren't more people jumping on the bandwagon?

The philosophy echoes the democratic party of the 50s and 60s--economically and diplomatically progressive but traditional on family and sexual issues. Especially in a place such as Kentucky, I see this philosophy as a breath of fresh air and, indeed, vital to the perpetuation of our party.

I know I am pro-civil union, but this is it; this is our future. There are Evangelical Christians buying into it; why can't we?
