Liberals vs. conservatives

I will vote straight Democratic in the upcoming presidential election but am concerned about the new moderate stance the party is taking. I understand that Gov. Bill Clinton is only being realistic; the truth is that a "bleeding-heart liberal" just can't get elected.

There has been a traditional rivalry between Democrats and Republicans that is wholesome for our society, and I hope the moderate stance doesn't damage the image the Democratic Party has that so sharply contrasts with conservative Republicanism.

The country has to periodically switch directions between traditionalism and liberalism, and those changes should be clear to voters. Jim Tennis, Romeoville, Ill.
