3. "Iím younger than they are."

Age (old ways of thinking versus new ways of thinking) is going to be a big issue in this primary. O'Malley is looking beyond left and right to problem-solving (pragmatism). I am tempted to go on, but I better not. Well, maybe a little... American Pragmatism (as exemplified in the philosophies of William James, Charles Peirce, and John Dewey) is, to my mind, the best expression of the spirit and method of democracy. It is about community, cooperation, working together for common goals. It is not about money or capitalism. It is about people trying to find common ground together in order to solve real problems.
