The paper explains the theory of the social movement and assesses the way in which the campaign of the two Democratic candidates, Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama, address the social needs of the population. The paper examines the major issues on their respective platforms, such as immigration, poverty and healthcare, that are related more to the domestic issues of the country, rather than the foreign policy of the United States. The paper also highlights how the main contenders themselves show how the society is changing in America. The paper therefore illustrates how the personalities as well as the policies of the representatives of the Democratic party are representatives for the current tendencies in the US social environment. Note: The paper is written prior to the US 2008 presidential elections.
