DEMOCRATIC STRATEGIST TALKS ABOUT WHY DEMOCRATS HAVE LOST RECENT ELECTIONS

04/19/06

Steve Jarding and Dave "Mudcat" Saunders are fed up with the arrogance of Republicans, and frustrated by a Democratic Party that has lost its will to fight. In "Foxes in the Henhouse: How the Republican Stole the South and the Heartland and What the Democrats Must Do to Run 'em Out" (A Touchstone Hardcover/Simon & Schuster; 0-7432-8651-0), Jarding and Saunders, who were key players in Democrat Mark Warner's upset win in Virginia's 2001 governor's race and veterans of some of the most surprising Democratic victories in the South and heartland take a look at the divisions between red states and blue, between America's rural and urban populations, explore how Republicans distort cultural, economic, and religious issues in their drive to gain and retain power.

Dave Mudcat Saunders joined us in the WMNF studios to talk about guns, the NRA, the importance of the rural vote, John Kerry's campaign, the Swiftboat veterans, bluegrass and NASCAR.
