Last year, only thirty-five Democrats were recognized nationwide by the Democratic Leadership Council for their commitment to finding "new policy solutions grounded in the core principles of progressive politics," whatever that means. Of these thirty-five, only two are from Pennsylvania. One, of course, is Governor Ed Rendell, singled out for his health care initiative, "Prescription for Pennsylvania."
Who's the other?
Lehigh County Exec Don Cunninghman has been singled out for a commitment to fiscal responsibility. If you ask me, the secret to Cunningham's success is a willingness top reach across the aisle and work with Republicans.
After all, we're all in this mess together.
