    “Listen Liberal or Whatever Happened to the Party of the People” Thomas Frank explores the last century of the Democratic Party in America. Being a liberal himself, Frank gives an insider view to the democratic party and its failures. I commend him for tackling this feat because most people would not be able to do the same about their respective party. I agree with a lot of things that have been brought to light in this book, such as the abandonment of the blue collar middle class for the white collar “professional class”, that the Democratic Party does not practice what it preaches , and that the leadership of the Democratic Party is not bothered by inequality as much as they project to be . These are all things that the Republican…

    The Whigs were a party made up of a diverse group brought together by their distaste of “King Andrew” Jackson, the current president. While the Whigs started out centered around the National Republican party, remnants of other parties such as the anti-masonic and democratic parties also joined the ranks of John Quincy Adams, Henry Clay, and Daniel Webster as supporters of the Whig party. These party members joined because they felt that they had in some way been alienated by Jackson’s stand on…

    After the riots, the immediate impacts were an already divided Democratic Party. “Since 1968, independent and on-the-fence voters have come to perceive that there are, in fact, two Democratic Parties represented by two kinds of candidates. There is the middle-income, middle-minded, socially more conservative, bread-and-butter Democratic Party. Then, there is the better-educated, higher-income, socially liberal Democratic Party.” Although the Mayor hoped to control the action on the streets,…

    There were pleas for favors, as when a Democratic Party official emailed Chuck Todd, the “Meet the Press” host, for tickets to an exclusive NBC soiree. (“I can’t even get every producer on my cable show into the party,” Mr. Todd replied.) There were gripes about coverage, with party aides dismissing the MSNBC host Steve Kornacki as a “hipster pit bull.” And there was disdain for the frequent flattery by television journalists. When Fox News sought permission to sponsor a Democratic primary…

    Both the Democratic-Republican and Federalist parties had their own opinions and views, but overall the Democratic-Republicans had a more suiting view the overall atmosphere of the country at the time. The parties "The Federalists' downfall was owing primarily to their self-defeating political philosophy, to their ineptness as politicians, and their vindictiveness with which, in their hour of triumph, they used, their political enemies" (Miller 276). The fall of the Federalist party was…

    Ronald Reagan once said, ”We could say that Democrats spend money like drunken sailors, but that would be unfair to drunken sailors… because sailors spend their own money.” In modern days, the face of the Democratic party is Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. The best friends of these people and their entire group of Democrats is the media. It is not just CNN, it is pretty much all the media besides FOX News, which people are desperate to tear apart. The Democratic Party is bad because they…

Since that time, Democrats have continued to convene once every four years and draft a party platform and nominate a Presidential candidate. And our meeting this week is a continuation of that tradition. But there is something different about tonight. There is something special about tonight. What…
