Barrett say 2008 will be a "banner year" for Democrats


Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said it's going to be a "banner year" for Democrats in 2008 and that any of the current Democratic presidential candidates could beat any of the Republicans.

Barrett said that's because Americans understand now what's at stake at the Supreme Court level, in Congress and in the way America is viewed around the world.

"I want America to be respected again in the world," Barrett said. "I think Democrats can provide that for us." Barrett compared the Democratic and Republican lineup of presidential hopefuls to the Harlem Globetrotters versus the Washington Wizards.

Barrett welcomed delegates and guest to a city he said is undergoing a "renaissance" but is still facing challenges and encouraged them to visit the many attractions.
