What do liberals want?

Anne Zook, in the guise of making "liberal" less of a dirty word, offers a smart, strong reform program that really shouldn't be limited to liberals. Sure, some of it is more liberal than not, but the goals transcend political "lines" (like there are nice neat categories!) and even most of the methods really aren't all that strongly tied to the "left-liberal" statecraft which is most often the target of such "conservative" scorn.

The Democratic party should adopt this as their platform for the 2006 interim elections; if they don't I'm going to have to create a party that will: Moderates Unite! You have nothing to lose but obstructionist partisanship!
