What Democrats Should Do

Yet another argument for the midterm convention. Daily KOS links to a Democracy Corps study: Daily Kos: Democracy Corps Study: What Democrats Should Do

"In the eyes of most of the voters with whom we spoke in these groups, Democrats have failed to differentiate themselves from Republicans on the bread-and-butter issues that matter most; they have lost their voice on cultural issues and allowed the right to define them; they have failed to defend themselves against Republican attacks that they are weak in defense of our country and support of our troops; and they have attacked Republicans without offering a positive vision of their own."

You can read the full report here but you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader. But again, the clear case is made that thinking the Republicans are imploding and running against them is not going to be enough. Until the leadership on the Left wakes up to realize this, Democrats are in for a major disappointment next year. A clear compelling case has to be made for electing Democrats and this comes from a clear and compelling agenda. How many times do I have to say this?
