Howard Dean is now unopposed in his run for head of the DNC. Tim Roemer, one of the few Democrats who actually understands how the Democrats might be able to run a winning campaign has dropped out.
“If there’s one reason Senator Kerry lost the presidential race, it was because he failed to make the American people feel safer,” Roemer said, adding that he also wanted to encourage talk within the party about developing a stronger position on values.
Roemer understands the political climate and why the Democrats have to understand why 2004 was realigning election. Instead, the radicals who have no concept of running a 50-state campaign have taken control of the party.
Unless the Democrats start learning to speak to middle America, they will go the way of the Whigs — and Howard Dean is the last person to lead them in that direction.
