Ron Lowe: Difference between the two parties

The difference between America’s two political parties: The Republican Party remains a good old boy network of failed supply-side economic policies, anti-abortion, anti-gay, anti-immigration religious extremism and a bastion of white power.

On the other hand, eight years ago, America was thrilled that the Democratic Party overcame racial prejudice and selected the first black man to be its presidential nominee. And what a good choice it has proved to be.

Now the first woman in American history has clinched enough delegate votes to be the Democratic presidential nominee in this year’s election. The past eight years have been transformational with the Democrats proving that anyone of any gender or race can be president.
