ABSTRACT
The author asserts the lack of a Democratic presidential candidate who would even remotely resemble how former U.S. President John F. Kennedy (JFK) gave importance to capitalism. Democratic Senator Hillary Clinton of New York, the party's likely presidential candidate in 2008, does not support implementing tax cuts, unlike JFK. Meanwhile, New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson is a tax cutter, like JFK.
