Dean Announces New Organization
Still using the same DFA initials as his campaign organization (Dean for America), the new organization, Democracy for America, "will be committed to 1) strong, sustained grassroots involvement in the democratic process, 2) promoting an America where candidates and office holders tell the truth about policy choices and stand up for what they believe, 3) fighting against the influence and agenda of the two pillars of George W. Bush’s Washington: the far right wing and their radical, divisive policies, and the selfish special interests who for too long have dominated politics, and 4) fighting for progressive policies, like health care for all; investment in children; equal rights under law; fiscal responsibility; and a national security policy that makes America stronger by advancing progressive values."
At the San Francisco event, a crowd of more than 1,000 supporters squeezed into a room set up to seat 600, and joked by saying, "With crowds like this, maybe it's not too late to get back in!" The crowd went wild, and he had to make sure they all knew he was only kidding.
Dean stated, "Democracy for America will be committed to promoting an America where candidates and office holders tell the truth about policy choices and stand up for what they believe. The era when politicians equivocate about matters as fundamental as war and peace must end."
For people wanting to be on the new DFA mailing list, sign up here. The new organization will not migrate the old mailing list over to the new list, so you must sign up again. The Dean blog will still be at BlogForAmerica.com.
