Howard Dean Sums Up the Modern Democratic Party

Howard Dean was on Face the Nation Sunday (Aug 14, 2005). One particular part of his interview stuck out to me. After talking about the president needing a plan, Schieffer asked Dean if he had a plan. Deans response:

Well, Bob, the president of the United States is commander in chief. It is up to him to come up for a plan. You can’t expect a congressman and senators who don’t have the same access to intelligence as the president does to come up with a plan to withdraw our troops from Iraq. […] What we need is a plan from the president of the United States. You can’t expect a particular senator or particular congressman to have a plan. Only the president can do that.”

WHY NOT? If you thought you were ready to be President of the United States, why can't I expect you to have a plan?

Now, I don’t know how much more clear it can be, but this is the root problem with the Democratic Party right now. They have no ideas, and no solutions. They have plenty of criticism, but no plans. Until this changes, Republicans will continue to win elections.
