US Democrats: All protectionists now

Daily Kos has this potted summary (1, 2, 3) of the latest Democratic Presidential candidates' debate:

Q: Outsourcing a problem?

GRAVEL: No. Bad trade deals, employer-based health insurance is the problem.

DODD: Yes. We need to try to keep jobs here.

CLINTON: Yes. Make it less advantageous to outsource -- fight for better trade deals. Develop new industries.

BIDEN: Need to take burden of employers. Make ourselves more competitive through infrastructure development.

EDWARDS: I've seen the horrors of outsourcing. Repeats tax, trade arguments seen earlier.

OBAMA: Much the same as Edwards et al.

KUCINICH: Need to cancel NAFTA, WTO.

You have to worry when Joe Biden makes the most sense out of all of them. Bring back Jed Bartlet, that's what I say.

If they keep this up I might end up supporting Rudy Guiliani (not that it makes the slightest bit of difference...)
