  •  Except it wasn't "everyone" that reversed Dean's (8+ / 0-)

    strategy, it was the old-line guard of Democrats-for-parasites Inc.

    These are the people that would rather see repubican'ts in power than to share theirs.

    •  True, but fighting won't make it better (4+ / 0-)

      This has been a feature of Democratic politics--and of organizational structure--forever. Some people are there because they have a vision. Some people are there for the goodies. A lot of people don't know the difference.  

      The prize is to get someone in leadership like Dean who understands how to mobilize people and why it's important. Focusing too much on the deadwood just leads to resistance. In an ideal world, we'd create a Committee of Superimportant Poobahs and install all the deadwood there, leaving the people with vision to do the work.
