Jesse Jackson: Dems Must Move to 'Moral Center'

The Rev. Jesse Jackson says the Democratic Party can triumph by “standing forcefully for what is right.”


“This is the time for citizens and for true leaders to move not left or right, to the expedient or the cautious, but to the moral center,” Jackson, a Baptist minister and former presidential candidate, said in a column for Chicago Sun-Times.


“In this time of troubles, I believe that Americans in large numbers are looking for leaders who will embrace the moral center, not the expedient, the safe or the fashionable. They are looking for champions who will represent them, not those with deep pockets.


“That may be the final irony. The most successful political strategy may well be not to trim to prevailing opinion or compromise with entrenched interest, but to stand up forcefully for what is right.”
