Dallas Paper: Take Us To Demo Leader

Issue: Take Us to Your Leader: Dems could use one, and an agenda, by fall/Dallas Morning News editorial

“Democrats also lack a telegenic spokesperson capable of convincingly pitching the party to Red America. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is a brittle San Francisco liberal who panicked party operatives when she suggested that a Democratic House would pursue impeaching President Bush (she has since recanted). Harry Reid, the Democratic Senate chief, has the milquetoast demeanor of a parson. Party chairman Howard Dean is … Howard Dean. And the Democrats’ only leading presidential hopeful, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, is as likely to play in Peoria as Tom DeLay is to blow away Berkeley.”

Question: Who has the best chance of leading the Democrats out of the wilderness this fall? By the 2008 presidential campaign?
