Dean Reaches Out, At Home And Abroad, DNC Chairman Meeting With World Leaders, Evangelicals In Preparation For ’08

No shittting, who decided to let this guy keep talking? The Dems STILL haven’t figured out that the ‘Us’ vs. ‘them’ tactic is what costs them the middle and there just aren’t enough people THAT far left to bring them a win in ’08.

Dean Reaches Out, At Home And Abroad, DNC Chairman Meeting With World Leaders, Evangelicals In Preparation For ’08 – CBS News

Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean has been meeting with world leaders to repair “the extraordinary damage” that the Bush administration has done to America’s image and to prepare the way for a new Democratic president.

“I am trying to build relationships with other governments in preparation for a Democratic takeover,” Dean told me. “I want to make clear that there is an opposition in America and that we are ready to take power and that when we do, we are going to have much better relationships with them.”

In an hour-long interview at Democratic National Committee headquarters Tuesday, Dean also revealed that he has been quietly meeting with well-known Christian evangelical leaders in order to build new bridges between them and the Democratic Party.

We’re never going to convince them on civil rights for gay people or abortion rights,” Dean said. “But we certainly can focus on the things that we both care about a lot: global warming, poverty and the materiality of our culture.”
