A Democrats Advice

Democrats have been losing a lot of elections lately for one major reason: they have only tried to court what they believe to be their core base, the Progressive Urban Yuppy,Sectarian Elite. They have for all practical purposes given up and ceded the Republicans the "religious" heartland and the rural South. If you don't believe it, just take note of the fact that in most of the states where they won, they only garnered the major population centers...IE, in Penn., they won Philly and Pittsburg, and lost every where else. Here in Ind. they only took something like four or five counties in the state (My home county being one of them btw). This, after the Democrats having held control in the statehouse the last two elections.

From a partisan standpoint, I for one am elated about this, as it means that I can look forward to my choice of candidates to be the winners. That said, there are a Democrats that could be excellant leaders, if they would run with what is really in their hearts, and not with the party's Elitetist heirarchy's packaged meme's.

There are Democrats that know this fact and have tried to clue the Party decision makers in, but those leaders have turned a deaf ear, preferring to listen to marketing and one issue lobbyists instead.

I found THIS PROFILE of one such Democrat that really does have a handle on how to win in America. After listening to him talk, even I would take a long, hard, second look at a candidate he would back, if it was a personal choice of his, and not just a campaign job.

I hope that "Mudcat" remains an outsider in the Democratic stratedgy councils; should they ever become wise enough to really listen to him, and heed his advice, the GOP would be in for big trouble.

Fair warning, the piece is a really long one, but assure you, that if you take the time to really absorb it, you'll be pleased with the insights it can give you, and it's well worth the time.

Raisinettes ?....hmmmm

The other part of the Democrats core base is blacks. For this reason, DC had the most overwhelming support for Kerry (78% to Bush's 12%?) in the nation. But you're right about the Democratic Party's failure to connect with a large portion of Americans.
