. March 19, 2008 SouthAmerica: The Democratic Party is in self-destructing mode and its current presidential candidates are complete damaged goods right now, and neither candidate has a prayer of winning the general election in November 2008. The Democratic Party managers were able to divide the party in such a way that they might end up dividing the entire country along color of skin lines â and turn the clock back on that issue in the United States at least 60 years. The first action the Democratic Party senior members should take it is to fire ASAP Howard Dean; since the Democratic Party is turning into a basket case under his leadership. I would suggest that they replace Howard Dean with Bill Bradley the former US Senator from NJ â Bill Bradley was a Rhodes scholar and he was also a NBA basketball superstar. But anyway, Howard Dean has to be fired ASAP. .
