To those who pooh-pooh framing

Dean shows how it is done:

Dean says that while Democrats believe in a "small government just big enough to get things done," Republicans "believe in a government just small enough to sit inside Terry Schiavo's nursing-home room." It was a clear reference to Republican attempts to keep the brain-damaged woman on life support.

My particular mantra is this: government should be as small as possible and as large as necessary.

A healthy political process is simply the non-violent method of resolving what "possible" and "necessary" mean.
