    As chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Mr. Dean pressed the party to expand its efforts and set up offices in all 50 states, arguing that the party was making a mistake in effectively ceding states to the Republican Party. That position led him into some famously pointed clashes with Representative Rahm Emanuel of Illinois, who at the time headed the Democratic Congressional Campaign, and who was angry that Mr. Dean was not sending money he had raised to help in Democratic efforts to take back Congress.

    Mr. Emanuel was appointed by Mr. Obama last week as the White House chief of staff.

    Politics means controlling the balance of economic and institutional power. Everything else is naming post offices.

        254-county strategy in Texas.

        It would be nice if we took it seriously like Dean did 50 states.
