  •  There may be many different motivations (none)
    These two guys may be running in '08 and they may be manuevering to get someone more amenable to their worldviews into Dean's slot.

    But the "anonymous sources" are most likely political consultants who feeling a bit lighter in the wallet.

    •  makes sense (none)
      so they're really two separate issues.

      1. biden and edwards put their foot in their mouths.  edwards has explained himself but i would even go to edwards and say "dude, damage done.  it's imperative we maintain a united front to the media at all times."   biden, stubborn ass that he is will never qualify his statement.

      2.  there are people, (not just limitted to consultants) in this party who will bash dean out of sheer fear of obsolescence and greed.

      i agree with both these statements.  2) almost goes without saying, at least for me it does.  it's war out there.  but the implied connections between 1) and 2) are only going to feed the paranoias that create the kinds of things that you were ranting AGAINST in this diary:

    •  If so, they should be careful (none)
      what they wish for.  If they manage to push Dean out of the DNC chairmanship, he will be in a strong position to run against them, no longer constrained by his promise not to run.
