Georgia's Hottest Political Export

Drew Westen may just be Georgia's hottest new export. According to The New York Times today, this Emory professor is being heavily courted by Democrats, including Bill Clinton who has read his book and underlined it for his wife. Much of what Westen recommends cuts against taking the safe road on tough issues. Consider this:

As Dr. Westen sees it, the decision to keep quiet when confronted with negative attacks or difficult and controversial subjects like race, abortion and gay rights is always a mistake. “Democrats run from every issue where there’s passion involved,” he complains. “If you don’t say anything, you are giving them” — your opponents — “the right to define the public’s feeling.”

Quick, Jane, grab Dr. Westen and and download his brain!
