Howard Dean on the 2006 Election

Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean today issued the following statement regarding the 2006 election results:

"Today the American people sent a clear message for a new direction. Voting for hope and opportunity, they rejected the Republican culture of corruption and the politics of fear and smear.

"I want to congratulate all of our Democratic candidates who ran strong campaigns, worked hard, and offered the American people a clear choice and a strong vision for a new direction based on the priorities of the American people. The American voters also sent a message to Democrats that if we show up, work hard and ask for their vote, we can win in any part of the country.

"I also want to congratulate Representatives Emanuel and Pelosi, Senators Reid and Schumer, DGA Chair Governor Bill Richardson and DLCC Chair Joan Fitz-Gerald, Colorado State Senate President, for their hard work. Our work doesn't end tonight; it begins tomorrow as we put forward an agenda that puts the American people first. Democrats are unified and ready to change the tone of politics in Washington to get things done for the American people.

"We will honor the trust the American people have put in us with the promise that we will respect all Americans. We will value your beliefs and your families as we restore America to its position of moral leadership thought the world. Together America will be stronger. Together we will move America in a new direction."

The fifty-state strategy worked! Grass-roots organizing worked! WE all worked together to make this happen! Give yourselves a huge round of applause; the country you have just saved is your own. . .

Howard Dean is a damn good & intelligent man. I realize he staying as the DNC chair, but I'd love to see him make a bid for the White House again. He's sincere, straightforward, an organizer and A LEADER.

It sickens me to see Rahm and Schumer up on the stage holding hands w/ Reid and Pelosi. Those guys fought against many of the candidates that pulled off big surprises on election night.

They fought tooth-and-nail to end Howard Dean's 50 state strategy. In the end, Dean was right and they were wrong - as usual. Them taking credit for the victory is big joke and I think rank-and-file democrats outside of DC know it.

They gave no support to Tester or Webb and those were the key races in winning the Senate. Howard Dean has the party on the right track and as long as it doesn't get hijacked by the beltway-insider crowd then we should do just fine...

No arguement here, Jeff. Dean was my choice last time around; but I'm damned glad he's in the chair that he's in.
