DNC Chair Answers Democrats

From TalkingDonkeys:
DNC Chairmain Dean directly answered questions to democrats, here was his answer to mine:

"You mentioned -- and I applaud -- the importance of religious outreach by the Democratic party. My question: how you plan to do this outreach, and how can this outreach extend to a distributed grassroots of religious people?
Tim C. Culver City, CA

Yes, we plan to reach out to religious groups -- first by acknowledging their relevance and importance. And, second of all -- pointing out the hypocrisy of Republicans when they talk about moral values.

We should learn how to talk about moral values. After all, If this election had been decided on moral values, Democrats would have won. It is a moral value to provide health care. It is a moral value to educate our young people. The sense of community that comes from full participation in our democracy is a moral value. It is a moral value to make sure that we do not leave our own debts to be paid by the next generation. Honesty is a moral value."

We do notice that Dean doesn't actually answer the question--how can this be a grassroots project--but perhaps it's unreasonable to ask that he be conversant with, and willing to divulge, all manner of strategy.

And perhaps this needs to be the grassroot's project anyway.
