DLC Closes Blueprint

From The Hill:

    When former Rep. Harold Ford Jr. (D-Tenn.) took the helm of the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC) after losing his Senate bid last November, he declared, “It is time to put the NEW back in New Democrat.”

    He wasn’t kidding. Ford made the statement in the cover story of the April issue of Blueprint, the DLC’s glossy bimonthly magazine that has served as a platform for New Democrats to influence their party since September 1998.

    But last week, Ford and the DLC decided Blueprint was old media and discontinued it, replacing it with a new website called IdeasPrimary.com.
