Walter Cronkite: Dem's need mid-term convention

Walter Cronkite is suggesting a Democratic Party Convention for the mid-terms. He writes to the New York Times that a convention "command" public attention to our agenda.

Here's what he says:

The key to a Democratic success in next year's Congressional election is clearly in the party leadership's coming up with a campaign that does not concentrate on the Bush administration's failures but offers alternative programs to fix what it believes is wrong with the Republican agenda.

A suggestion by which the Democratic Party could command the greatest public attention for its positive agenda: It could within weeks call an extraordinary midterm convention to draw up its platform.

The convention would not need to be expensive. The delegates could be those who attended the 2004 convention. Their meeting would be open to the public and of course the press.

Sounds like a good idea to me. Thanks to SneakySnu from DailyKos for the heads up.
