Re: “Sonntag leads Democrats supporting McKenna” (TNT, 6-12).

State Democratic Party chairman Dwight Pelz said he has “been through Democrats for Dino and Democrats for Hutchinson.” No doubt after a careful evaluation of each issue he seems to have concluded the Democratic Party is simply correct on all matters.

Wow, that was easy. Unfortunately such idealistic faith in any political party demonstrates a profound lack of curiosity, intellectual laziness or perhaps some mixture of the two. I’m not certain what combination is on display here, but quite unintentionally Pelz provides a stunning illustration of what’s wrong with Washington politics.

True leaders of both parties are the individuals reaching out.
