Being Right Is Not Enough : The 2006 midterm elections may be the most hotly contested in decades, and the Democrats are hoping to win big. But they can't do it without a coherent strategy. Now, a much needed architect has arrived in Paul Waldman, who at last gives progressives the clear-eyed, multifaceted plan they need for victory. Like conservatives since Barry Goldwater's defeat, he argues, progressives need to start planning for long-term success, and they need for starters, to come up with a way to describe their worldview in a single sentence. Offering a host of specific advice and recommendations-how Democratic candidates must be strong as well as right, and why Democrats should forget the South and embrace the Southwest-this book may well be the landmark game plan for progressives that The Emerging Republican Majority was for the Goldwater/Reagan Republicans.
