  •  While I like Dean, this kind of bothers me (none)
    I wish  more people questioned the idea (which Dean, unfortunately, encourages more than he should) that everything associated with "Washington" is bad and horrible, and everybody that worked for the DNC before Dean came to town is an incompetent moron.  This is a point that deserves its own diary, which I wish I had time to write.  

    Also, while I'm not a huge fan of Terry McAullife, does anyone have any proof that he actually took limousines every time he left Washington?  I need more than an Alternet article to make me believe that.  

    •  Populism (none)
      Populism begins with the not unfounded assumption of the venality of elites.  Few would say that the Beltway Dem consultantocracy are incompetent morons; very competent and getting invited to chi-chi Georgetown soirees; not at all moronic about ways to line their pockets with corporate cash.  Such populism is the ancient and well-founded wisdom of the American people.
