What is a “Change Candidate”?

The Democratic Candidates Need to Explain How They’ll Bring Change

The top three Democratic candidates have been going on and on about change. They are telling Americans that they are the “change candidates”. But what does that mean? I don’t get it.

Change is such a vague word. When you hear the candidates talk about the change, you never really hear a substantive explanation for what it means to them.

Obama dances around an explanation. He talks about ending partisan bickering, but the Senator doesn’t explain how he will make it happen.

I want to know how he plans to do it. You can talk about change all day long, but in order to make it happen, you need to know how you’re going to do it.

I think the Democratic candidates can get away with not explaining how they will make change happen because Americans don’t need one.

They’re just so desperate for a change from the brand of politics that George Bush has brought to Washington. They’ll pick any candidate that is talking about change because they just want to change presidents.
