The Democrats have a dream, that politics can be hipped up. And that the disaffected young citizens of America will set aside their sense of abandonment and apathy and flash-mob the polls, pulling the Big D lever in '04.
The dream undulates into shape Monday night at Dream, the sleek, four-story dance club on New York Avenue NE, with a Democratic National Committee fundraiser that raises the roof and a quarter-million dollars, one $50 ticket at a time.
DNC chairman Terry McAuliffe looks out over the club's second floor, so packed it represents the sardines-in-a-can wing of the Democratic Party, and beams. "How great is this!" he yells over the blasting hip-hop, thrilled that 90 percent of those who bought tickets are first-time party donors.
The bass lines are so thumping that it defibrillates the hearts of all 4,500 people, lured to party with former president Bill Clinton. The aim is to make politics sexy for the 18-to-34 crowd, not in a "Sir, the girl is here with the pizza" way, but in a smart, leggy, sassy way.

Billy Jeff, let me clue you in: You can give yourself a tax-hike any time you want to. The income tax forms don't force you to take deductions, and you can donate any tax refund you may get back to the Federal govt. I bet there are any number of ways private citizens can voluntarily give the government money.
Now that you know this, I'm sure you'll stop deducting the used drawers you donate to the homeless. Freepers have LONG memories.
"I don't think there's anyone else, period," says Justin Pascal, 29, the DNC staffer who directs McAuliffe's office and created the event. For young people, "he is their president. Most people came of age under Bill Clinton. They graduated when he was in office, got their first job when he was in office. He is their president."
"Longing" for a politician, ugh.
Well, we're really embarrassed to live in a country that elected a piece of crap like Bill Clinton president, but there's not much we can do about it now.
Your "friends" killed 3000+ Americans, Bill. Mostly due to your failed foreign policy legacy.
We should first kill those who want to kill us.
