What's wrong with our party?

1.) Lack of leadership and principled elected officials.

Our democratic party is full of opportunists, strategic players, and self protectionists. Americans admire people with convictions...people who stand for something. The conservative charge that democrats don't stand for anything sticks...because it's true. Not us...not us in the grass roots. Our leaders don't stand for anything.

2.) We are identified by the fringe.

In the vacuum created by our elected officials lack of leadership we look to anyone who will stand on principle. Often these folks stand on the fringe of American political life. In itself there is nothing wrong with this, but it won't attract moderates to the party.

Unless Democrats address these problems we are going to continue to spin our wheels.
