Repairing the Democratic Tent

An interesting opinion piece on the Washington Post site this morning by Tim Roemer about some of the current attitudes prevalent in the Democratic Party and how they have harmed said party. Roemer was one of the challengers to Howard Dean for the chair of the DNC, though he dropped out recently after it became clear that Dean was going to win by a[n unfortunate] landslide.

Obviously I don’t agree with Roemer on everything (some of the article is typical anti-Republicanism), but he is a fairly moderate Democrat who I have nothing against—and, more importantly, he’s right about today’s Democratic Party.
