Democrats Need Will To Win
Bob Herbert: The strongest ticket might be Dean-Clark. But the Democrats need more than a candidate or two. The party needs a plan. It needs a coherent, compelling, convincing narrative that shows how voters and the nation would be better off under Dean or Clark or Dick Gephardt -- take your pick -- than they are now.
To regain control of the White House, the Democrats need to give voters, who are frightened by terrorism and disoriented by the pace of 21st century events, new reasons to hope. That can only be done by a thoughtful, united, energized and creative party. A party with a plan and a ferocious will to win.
A party that I don’t see at the moment.
el - Bob Herbert doesn't see the Deaners committed to taking this county, and party, back.
