Dean: ‘Be Smarter About Message’

Item: Dean: Democrats must be smarter about their message/Nick Rotunno, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: He encouraged simple Democratic messages - money management, for instance, and fairness in society - and repetition of those messages. “The 857th time that you're saying the same thing is the first time a lot of people are hearing you,” Dean said. On the issues of abortion, immigration and gay marriage, he once again stressed simplicity. Republicans, he said, are very concise when describing their anti-abortion stance: Life begins at conception. When advocating for pro-choice, Democrats should be equally clear-cut.

Question: Will the Democrats hold the White House and/or the U.S. Senate in 2012?
