Bloggers at Dkos please keep reccomending and please send messages to DNC, this community can keep changing the dem party, and this is part of the way to transform it. Unlike the Republicans there is no Teenage Democrats,

This is why, the dems lose, we have no starting base for enthusiastic liberals.  There are many ppl like me here in New York and elsewhwere around the country, teens who want to get involved but just don't know how to.  I've volunteered at the spitzer campaign, but i feel out of place, everyone is double my age.  The Teenage Gopers are quite active, they hold conventions, help campaigns and meet with lawmakers.  By our party not enlisting the help of teens we let straglers drift to the gop side.  The grassroots of the Democratic Party must extend beyond computer screens and into the next genration, my eneration.  With the baby boomersleaving us  whowill fill their shoes, it is up to party leadership to make some changes.  I sent an email to the DNC about this but have gotten no response, we need a teenage dems and we need change.  What separates Dems from Republicans is our openess to new ideas, if we want to start winning we must progress.  2006 should be a new era for dems one where we win, one where we have a teenage democrats.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
