What’s Next?

Now that the November election is behind us, it is time to sit back and relax and ponder.  I believe that this election more than any other since I have run for public office shows that it is time for us to take charge of the Democratic Party and loudly demand new leadership.  I have read many analyses of what happened, what has to be done, and blah, blah, blah.  It is the same old stuff in the same old stuffy bottles.  We got whupped.  And I say we because I am a Democrat and proud of our party.  The thing about losing is – I do not like it and I am certain that none of us like to be on the losing side in elections.  So let’s see how we can stop the bleeding.  The Dallas Cowboys recently demonstrated what happens when a leader fails and you are on a losing streak – you replace the leader.  We Democrats need the same change. On the top of the list is a change in leadership.  We need to accept the possibility that the Republicans are going to be in charge for several years, so we must move on from the current objective of simply holding on to what we have.  There are good stalwarts of the Democratic Party and they need to stand up and let us know what they are going to do to stop this losing streak.  As for all the political advisors who had the winning formula for this past election – they need to be fired along with the head coach.  I know there are many of you concerned about the state of the Democratic Party, well – now is the time to turn concern into action and elect a leader who will demand more than simply “doing better than last election.” We will never win an election if the only objective is to improve the numbers for the possibility of a future victory.
