Democrats are now looking ahead to 2004, but no one appears to be the early front runner as the party begins casting about for a strategy. I would suggest that strategy include not forgetting about 2003. I’m not prepared to speculate beyond that truism now; I’m concerned with specific verbal/textual performances. This morning the Democrats are still licking their wounds, so it’s difficult to assess the quality of their response (allowing them, say, 48 hours leeway to wallow in their pain).

The Rhetorica Network
I offer commentary on the rhetoric of the American conversation, especially as it unfolds in documentary film, the news media, and politics. Check out my feeds on Twitter and Instagram. Also be sure to see my work at Carbon Trace Productions, a non-profit documentary film studio in Springfield, Missouri. I am a Professor of Media & Journalism at Missouri State University.
