Party waits on Reid: Democrats look to leader for their message
Now we know why the Repugs are focusing renewed attacks on Reid ...trip up!

WASHINGTON - Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid's "war room" spokesman Jim Manley stood outside the ornate Lyndon B. Johnson Room in the Capitol on Wednesday, waiting for Reid to emerge from a closed-door political strategy session with fellow Democrats.

Asked if Reid would talk to the media about the party's message, Manley chuckled.

"Not if I can help it," he said, only half joking.

When Reid shuffled out, Manley threw his arm around the Nevada Democrat, and they swept past several reporters and into the Senate chambers.

The moment illustrated a question on the minds of political observers, including a few Democrats: When is the party going to unveil its agenda and tell America what it stands for?

Some party activists say Reid and the Democratic Party's other leaders - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.; Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean; Democratic Senate Campaign Committee Chairman Charles Schumer, D-N.Y.; and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Rahm Emauel, D-Ill. - are blowing a historic opportunity to take advantage of Republican missteps.

2. Ok, fire Manley and tatoo this on Reid's palm

The American people want a party that represents a message of inclusion, a united party with a plan. And they have just that in the Democratic Party:

1. American jobs that will stay in America, using energy independence to generate those jobs.

2. A strong national defense based on telling the truth to our citizens, our soldiers and our allies.

3. Honesty and integrity to be restored to government.

4. A health care system that works for everybody just like they have in 36 other countries.

5. A strong public education system so we can have optimism and opportunity back in America.

3. Reid, Pelosi, and Schumer... says it all.
Of course they are blowing it!!! With those three... Reid 'nows not the time to fight Alito', Pelosi 'how can I help defeat Democrats in 04' and Schumer 'I flip a coin every day to see who I'll suck up to'.

Folks, these are the people that are the problem in the party.

I wish Dean and Rahm would just split off and do their own thing. Really.

5. The Cons are dieing to know! Absolutely beside themselves
that they don't have a formal proposal in their hands ready for Frank Luntz to do his magic on.

6. they could say they've been around for a couple of hundred years
and the last 70 since FDR was elected might offer some clues.
