Va. Gov. Warner to AP: Democratic Prez Candidate Must Buck Party Orthodoxy (AP, 6/08/05)

Democrats must stop forcing presidential candidates to "check every box in terms of Democratic orthodoxy" if the party is win back the White House, Virginia Gov. Mark Warner told The Associated Press.

"One of my critiques of Senator Kerry, and I campaigned hard for Senator Kerry, was I can't tell you where he ever broke with anything in Democratic orthodoxy," Warner said in an interview with the AP Tuesday. "We've got to rethink the way we talk to the American people, what we lay out as to where we're headed."

As Bill Clinton showed, you've got to run as a moderate Republican and hope your opponent runs as a liberal Republican.
