James Carville on Principles & Values

 


2002: We've got to stand FOR something

By becoming a Bush-bashing old-style Democrat, Landrieu invigorated her campaign. Many yellow-dog Democrats who stayed home on November 5 were now proud to pull a lever for Landrieu on December 7.

The Democrats had no message to sell on November 5. As Carville put it: "We've got to stand FOR something. No one made the case." To her credit Landrieu had learned the fundamental lesson of the midterm election: Democrats were not going to get elected by not criticizing George W. Bush.
