Sunday's Post: More From Yearly Kos and What's Wrong With the Dems?
The Fix's Chris Cillizza adds a few more details about the Yearly Kos conference in the The Post's Sunday Politics column. Take a read here: "Conservative Mormon a Darling of the Kos."
Meanwhile, Post reporter Dan Balz weighs in with his own piece from Yearly Kos, writing: "The newest provocateur in Democratic Party politics bounced through the corridors of the Riviera Hotel this weekend wearing jeans or baggy shorts, sneakers and a perpetually mischievous grin. His name is Markos Moulitsas ZÃºniga, and not many years ago, no party leader had heard of him. Today they are courting him and many like him." Read the full article here: "Bloggers' Convention Draws Democrats."
Balz also has an essay in Sunday Outlook about the Democrats titled, "Always the Party of What-Went-Wrong."
Sunday Outlook, by the way, has an essay by Michael Grunwald on how the Democrats can win over voters in this year's midterm elections. Asking the question, "What's wrong with the Democrats," Grunwald writes: "It may seem like an odd question, now that polls show voters trust Democrats more than Republicans on every major issue -- including national security. But even Democrats -- especially Democrats -- seem to think their party is uniquely capable of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory this fall. And all around the Beltway and the blogosphere, every self-flagellating Democratic expert seems to know why."
Other Outlook pieces on the Demcrats are:
* GO BACK TO WHAT WORKS (Be Like Bill), by Al From and Bruce Reed.
* FIND YOUR TRUE CENTER (Don't Compromise), by David Sirota.
* DON'T BE A CONTROL FREAK (Ask for Help), by Peter Beinart.
Finally, the lead political story in today's Post is Jim VandeHei's article, "Democrats Closing Fundraising Gap With Republicans."
