photoThe Democratic Party will elect a new chair in February. A range of contenders for the position threw their hats into the ring this weekend, from anti-war candidate Howard Dean to centrist Sidney Rosenberg.

Should the Democrats take a right turn and move to the center? Or is their best bet sticking with their progressive base? Should the Party emphasize a hawkish stance on the war? Or does it all come down to pushing hard on the domestic economy?

Tune in to hear from the players on both sides discuss what they think is best for the Democrats, for America, and you.

Guests:

Peter Beinart, editor of the New Republic

David Sirota, director of strategic communications at the Center for American Progress.

This program aired on December 15, 2004.
