The Theory of Change

Mark Schmitt, one of my favorite bloggers who I've unfortunately not made enough time to read lately, does a nice job of laying out the approaches of the top three Democratic candidates with particular attention to why Obama's message may not be as naive as it may appear to some (including the Washington press corps). I'm firmly in John Edwards' camp as I believe his movement ideas are the best way to get progressive politics viable again, but I won't have any trouble at all pulling the lever (or filling in the little oval) for any of those three.

I think one of the most important questions about the candidates at this point is: Who is likely to have the longest coattails? Because no Dem President will get much done absent a significant power shift in Congress. And from my admittedly GOP standpoint, I don't see either Clinton or Obama pulling the same weight as Edwards right now.
