No Circular Firing Squad, Please

Despite the defeat of Republicans in unexpected places such Kansas, foppish, preening, inside-the-Beltway self-promoters such as Rahm Emanuel and James Carville continue to assail DNC chairman Howard Dean for his fifty-state strategy. So much so that they want to run the newly-available Harold Ford of Kentucky against Dean for the chairmanship. (Even though the Dems have now won at least 28 U.S. House seats with eight yet to be called, Carville and Emanuel are still mad at Dean for refusing their request to target all DNC spending on the top 20 races around the country.)

Small suggestion: let’s avoid the typical old-style Democrat circular firing squad. The fact that Howard Dean does not play by Washington rules and wants a to build the party in places like Montana, Kansas, and Mississippi is not a bad thing; it’s a good thing. The party is energized and on the march. That’s not a time to switch leaders.

No thanks on Harold Ford. He tries to out holy the holies and is outside the mainstream of the Democratic party. Dean was elected based on a grouindswell of real democrats. Don't fuck with him.
