A Clear Direction After Election DayWritten by Angela Winters

to have a chance in any upcoming elections, they have to expand their base. They can only do that by electing more moderate, likeable candidates. Obama is a good example. Regardless of fact that he was basically running equivalent of unopposed, middle is their only chance. They need a candidate who can appeal to base and not just steal Independents, but steal Republicans way Clinton did. They need a candidate that people want as opposed to a candidate that will do as long as other guy doesn't win. If they continue to rely on college kids and African Americans, they are going to stay where they are. The minority party.
So here we are. A President in power with support of a little over half people, but more than he got last time. What are you thinking? What are you feeling? Barring something really unusual, Bush is going to win. What do you want him to do differently? What can all politicians do to quell some of this partisan hatred?

Democrats - Where to now?Written by Gary R. Hess

Like me, many will say that Kerry did a good job during debates describing his views, but for some reason or another not everyone watches these. He must get out onto campaign trail and make some one liners which will stick in peoples heads when they go to polls on Election Day.
Other arguments are that he did make his voice clear, but just wasn't heard because media only played his one liners against Bush. If this is so, don't make any one liners against him. With FCC breathing down network throats, they have to have equal amount of time for each candidate. This means that if there isn't any audio of Democrat bashing Republican, they have to play one other tape, which say something positive.
I am by no means a political expert, but I do believe whole-heartedly that Democratic Party will have to go through major changes over next four years to compete with colossal machine we call Republican Party.
