"...public opinion deserves to be respected as well as despised" G.W.F. Hegel, 'Philosophy of Right'

a simple question « Previous | |Next »
June 10, 2006

Can the federal ALP do a Clinton?

Clinton was able to link opportunity to responsibility--by demanding work in welfare reform, but then insisting that government had an obligation to "make work pay".

Would that provide the ALP with a politically sustainable model for broadening the benefits of prosperity? Would that kind of strategy enable the ALP to deliver for families struggling on the lowest rungs of the economic ladder without alienating those in the middle class above them?
