''Ideas, Leadership, and Agenda''
"Did Tom DeLay have it right when he spoke at a dinner in his honor hosted by the American Conservative Union? He said the Democrats have “No ideas. No Leadership. No agenda.” As a progressive with strong Democratic leanings, I can’t identify a clear stance articulated by the Democratic Party today. Is Howard Dean working behind the scenes readying the party for the next round of elections? Where is the voice of Missouri progressives? I’m all for grassroots politics spearheaded by such groups as People for the American Way, Move On, and Missouri Pro Vote, but where’s the cohesion; where’s the spotlight? When working class and poor voters hear the facts, they just might swing in our direction. Howard Dean needs to start framing these issues. "-from the post on MO Progressive.
