Is a fuzzy vision better than none at all?

A group of people have published a declaration of progressive principles, which, according to the Washington Post, has received backing from some “prominent Democrats.” The authors have chosen vagueness as a unifying tool.

    However spacious the language, the Principles Project’s declarations represent a partial answer to two questions that have percolated in Washington since the November election. One is whether the grass-roots activity and political energy that was mobilized on the Democratic side against President Bush would continue after his reelection.

However, a re-reading of the Kerry-Edwards platform still available on line reveals the need for some more specific thinking. My analysis is now available.
