Re "Rescuing the Democrats," by David Brooks (column, Oct. 21):
Here's a profile of one Democrat who has given up on the party: female, white, over 70, middle-class, advanced degree, Northeasterner, Catholic and lifelong Democrat.
No one will notice, but that doesn't bother me. There are many others like me out there.
The Democratic candidates have no shared vision for our country. Instead, they waste time and resources cutting one another off at the knees. It's too bad, because President Bush is quite vulnerable.
