We deserve better.

The interview with Howard Dean only further highlights the lack of vision, leadership, and principals in the Democratic Party [Person to Know, June 20]. What kind of political double talk is "I support equal rights under the law for every single American," yet political fears keep him from actually saying "gay Americans"? Is this what the Democratic Party did during the civil rights era--support equality in theory without actually using the word "black"? What happened to the party that used to take stands on issues because it was the right thing to do (even if poll numbers made it a risk)? That's called leadership, and, unfortunately, that is not what Howard Dean or top Democrats have given us in a long time. We deserve better.
