My dry spell in blogging has been brought up from its lethargy…. I have risen from the grave with something that sets my wheels a turning on what I should talk about today. And the Democratic Leadership Council has earned my thanks by giving me some fodder to Blog with.
Democrats Discussing ‘What We Stand For’

(CNSNews.com) – The Democratic Leadership Council, which describes itself as a centrist group, is holding a “national conversation” on what the party should stand for.
The meeting in Columbus, Ohio, began on Saturday and winds up Monday with a speech from Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, the not-yet-running-for-president candidate.
“At a time when Washington remains gripped in partisan warfare based on the Bush administration’s narrow and ideologically driven agenda, it’s a good time for Democrats to look beyond the Beltway and talk honestly with each other about what we should stand for,” the DLC said in a press release.
“That will be the primary purpose of the DLC 2005 National Conversation,” it added.
What is the point of a platform then… Honestly people. We get allot of big wheels in the party togther.. they hold meetings every four years and come up with a Party Platform which canidates are ( more or less) supposed to run on.
State parties also come up with their own platform.
Now… they have elected a National party leadership team, they have passed a platform.. and they even nominated a canidate….
and they don’t know what they stand for
I guess the headline from American Dad is true… “Democratic party missing, feared dead.”
