"They don't have anything to say to anyone aout anything that matters to anyone," said pollster John Zogby on why Democrats can get no traction, action or satisfaction, despite missteps by Republicans, in the Christian Science Monitor last week.
Zogby described the Democrats as the party of liberal causes and special interests -- civil rights, gay rights, women's rights, labor, the environment -- but failing to address the issues and concerns important to Middle America.
"Democrats are going to have to come up with remedies that matter to middle America, and if they don't do that you can have a reprise of '02 and '04 [elections]," he said, describing them as "tongue-tied."
He's right, of course. "Bush sucks" is not a strategy.
