WesternDemocrat.com Kicks Off
So, welcome to WesternDemocrat.com. What's this all about?
It's time for the Democrats to recognize that the future of our party lies here in the West. To be successful, we must truly be a national party - and the greatest hope for expansion lies in the battleground states of Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, and Colorado. And, yes, perhaps even Montana, Utah, Idaho, and Wyoming.
Even within Blue states like Oregon, Washington, and California, Democrats must look beyond the cities to the sagebrush, rangelands, and mountain country.
This site will tell stories of the West - and serve as a place to gather for conversation about a new Democratic Party, a Western Democratic Party.
There's not much here just yet, but just you wait. We've only just begun to fight.
Your Personal Note:
Man, I tell ya, these blogs are addictive.

Is it appropriate for a current eastern time zone resident to prop this up? Methinks yes... cheers on the idea Kari!

Cool idea Kari. The Western States of America. Has a nice ring to it!

This site is a great idea. Democrats with a western perspective need a place to discuss the issues free from the idiocy of our New England and left-coast party-mates. Massachusetts Democrats have had their chance to set the Democratic agenda and it's cost us bigtime. Even though Kerry only lost by a few percentage points in total, the national map is only more red than before. And that we're down to just 45 seats in the Senate is going to hurt. So it's time for Democrats with good old Western values to speak up and take this party back!
