The Democratic Party has a long history, existing not only as a political organization but also as a national vision. The late Ron Brown -- former Chairman of the Democratic Party -- wrote, "The common thread of Democratic history, from Thomas Jefferson to Bill Clinton, has been an abiding faith in the judgment of hardworking American families, and a commitment to helping the excluded, the disenfranchised and the poor strengthen our nation by earning themselves a piece of the American Dream."
