Democrats sense opportunity in '04
With packed slate, candidates try to stand apart from crowd


By DAVID JACKSON / The Dallas Morning News

WASHINGTON Democrats increasingly believe their presidential nomination will be worth having after all assuming they don't split apart first.

The party's White House challengers see President Bush as more vulnerable as his once-lofty approval ratings slip over the economy and questions about the war in Iraq.

But at the same time, the party's liberal and centrist wings are waging an internal debate about how best to challenge Mr. Bush, a fight driven largely by the hottest name in politics, former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean.

"We're coming to believe that we have a very good opportunity in 2004," said Al From, founder of the Democratic Leadership Council, which includes some of Dr. Dean's most prominent critics. "The challenge to this party is to make sure we take advantage of it."
