    About the DLC: Where Ideas Happen

    The Next Generation of Leaders

    From statehouses to Congress to the Obama Cabinet, the DLC has an unparalleled track record in identifying and promoting tomorrow's leaders.

    Rahm Emanuel, Hillary Clinton, Janet Napolitano, Ken Salazar, Kathleen Sebelius, Tom Vilsack, Evan Bayh, Tom Carper, Mark Warner, Ron Kirk, Larry Summers, Christine Gregoire, Martin O'Malley, and Harold Ford, Jr., are just a few of the leaders who have worked closely with us over the years on their way to becoming influential Democratic voices.

    DLC's "Saving the American Dream" Plan: Radical Help for the Middle Class

    Updated August 03, 2006

    In July 2006, the Democratic Leadership Council released its radical new initiative report, "Saving the American Dream: Bold Ideas for America's Future," which was chaired and authored by Senator Hillary Clinton, and co-chaired by Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack and Senator Tom Carper of Delaware. . . .

    Founded in 1985 after President Ronald Reagan's reelection, the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC) is a non-profit group that represents centrist and conservative Democratic party leaders.

    Tom Vilsack Steps Down From The DLC To Run For President

    Vilsack Stepping Down from DLC to Run for President

    Democratic Presidential Candidate Follows Path of Former DLC Chair Bill Clinton

    DES MOINES, IA – Democratic presidential candidate Tom Vilsack, following the precedent established by former DLC Chair Bill Clinton, announced today he is resigning his post at the Democratic Leadership Council to focus on his campaign for President. Published reports this morning indicate that former Tennessee Congressman Harold Ford, Jr. is preparing to succeed Vilsack at the DLC.

    Vilsack is just one of MANY conservative Dems who've been successful at hiding their DLC affiliation.

    Almost all of the Democratic Party's "Elite Establishment Dems" come from the "Third Way" ideology.

    So, I'd say that JML9999 nailed it.  ;-).
