Sen. Chris Dodd Makes the Case    Back  |  Main  |  Next
DNC Winter Meeting, Washington, DC, Feb. 1-3, 2007
In his speech, Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) declared that, "In 2008, the American people are going to have an answer for the election-defrauding, wire-tapping, Abu-Graihbing, debt-exploding, Exxon-loving, Brownie-you've-done-a-hellavu-job crowd."   However, Dodd said that criticism of the Bush administration in itself is not a winning formula.  "As a candidate for the presidency, I'll certainly remind people of the damage that this administration has done to our country at home and around the globe, but I also intend to spend more time telling people what I want us to do together to make America great again," Dodd stated.  He said:
Leadership insists on holding a core set of values, a core set of principles, and a demonstrated ability to bring people together around those common values and principles.  That's what I did on the Family Medical Leave Act, on childcare, in Central America, on the FIRE Act, and many other issues and what I will do if you'll nominate me and give me the chance to be your President.
