Synopsis: For those Americans who have questioned or forgotten the aims and strengths of the Democratic Party, a well known Democrat from the Kennedy era has written a thoughtful reminder.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.: The following is part of the first chapter from this book:
"Making a Choice"

I am a Democrat, by conviction as well as affiliation, not by birth but by choice, not because of my parents or neighbors or spouse but because of my basic values and beliefs. I am not a New Democrat or an Old Democrat, a reconstructed or unreconstructed New Deal Democrat, a "different kind of Democrat" or a "yellow dog" Democrat, one who would vote the straight Democratic ticket even if the party nominated a yellow dog for office and occasionally it has. I'm just a Democrat. Some of my opinions on public-policy issues stamp me as a ""liberal'' Democrat, some as a ""moderate,'' some as a ""conservative,'' but for most of my opinions no single label makes sense. I receive no government or party payments of any kind, and no pressure from my law partners or clients, many of whom are Republicans. I am simply one of millions who find the Democratic Party's candidates, principles, and positions consistently preferable to those of the Republicans.

I do not claim that the Democratic Party has not had its share of demagogues, hypocrites, fools, and knaves. I do not claim that all its positions and programs have proved over time to be wise or workable. I claim only that among all the realistic choices before me, it is the best. I do not speak for any party or public official, for any candidate or committee, for anyone other than myself. This book was not written at the request or with the endorsement of the Democratic Party. No one can speak for all Democrats. Our party has traditionally been characterized by more internal diversity and differences than the Republicans. That is sometimes our weakness but ultimately our strength. Democrats are by nature inclusive, not exclusive. We have long been and will long remain the country's most broad-based, multi-interest party, with a membership too independent-minded to be doctrinaire about everything and too undisciplined to be unanimous about anything.
