Ehrenreich is on point and exactly right, as usual. There has been no real growth in incomes here in Pennsylvania for ten years or more (but Walmart has been expanding by leaps and bounds). The Clinton/Bush trade policies (and they are identical, make no mistake about it) have gutted industrial production base to the point where our very security is subject to the whims and craven goals of foreign producers and foreign investors.
If any candidate besides Edwards has even noticed this all-too-obvious economic quagmire, they haven't seen fit to talk about it. I'm just not going to vote for any Democratic presidential candidate that quacks like a Republican on issues of economic fairness, or is--worse yet--silent on them.
