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?
