  •  Yes, but look at how Frost lost. (4.00)
    He ran the way he needed to run. I got that.

    My problem is that someone who has to run away from the party shouldn't be DNC Chair.

    If some Democrats absolutely have to run a little bit away from the national party, ok fine.  It's that bad in some places.  Just don't ask me to support said person for DNC Chair.

    And just because Dean didn't win in the primaries, doesn't mean he isn't the guy for DNC Chair. My support for Dean for DNC Chair (and likewise for Simon Rosenberg if Dean doesn't get it) is that both of them are interested in fixing the fundamental structural problems in the party and the lack of a strong narrative for the Dems. In a close election, stronger state parties/Democratic Party infrastructure and a better narrative for the Democratic Party (party ID is the #1 factor in vote choice) would have propelled Kerry over the top in 2004. Both are crucial regardless of who we nominate and who we run in national, state, and local races. Dean is committed to doing both for the party, and are quite frankly, probably the top two needs for the party (followed closely behind by new ways at targetting voters).  

    Ask not what your party can do for you, but what you can do for your party.--Newsie
