P.S. — Will D’s Come Unwrapped Over War? — 7/11/06

Issue: Democratic Primaries Highlight Divisions On Iraq: Lieberman, Cantwell In Trouble w/Party’s Left Wing/

More Info: Former President Clinton, at a political fundraiser in Indianapolis on Wednesday, bemoaned his party’s breaks. Clinton said the Iraq war was a mistake that diverted attention from al-Qaida and Afghanistan, but he added, “It bothers me to see our Democrats too divided on what we do now.”

Question: Every hard-core Demo knows what Will Rogers once said about his party: “I don’t belong to an organized party; I’m a Democrat.” However, that lack of organization and the pull of the anti-war ideologues could spell trouble for a party trying to wrest power from the Repubs. What must the D’s do to get their act together to make a serious run at regaining the House of Reps. this fall?
