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.

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?
