E.J. Dionne Finds Inclusion on the Campaign Trail

Tuesday, April 08, 2008 | Margy's Blog & Updates

In his column today, E.J. Dionne (a favorite of The Mobility Agenda) reports that the message of “inclusion” on the campaign trail has overcome old-style, slice-and-dice-progressive-constituencies “micropolitics”.

It’s great to have the press call attention to this concept. And no surprise that E.J. Dionne is one of the first to do so.

National Review, Huckabee, Obama, and Social Inclusion

John O’Sullivan, “a British conservative political commentator and journalist” (according to Wikipedia) writes about social inclusion as an emerging issue in the 2008 election in National Review magazine.

While I don’t agree with O’Sullivan’s description of the differences between the meaning intended by Mike Huckabee and Barack Obama with their inclusion themes, I found their post-Iowa caucus speeches more compelling than the other candidates‘. And it’s interesting to see someone inject a little inclusion into the campaign – by name.
