    how it relates (it's early), but this brings to mind E.J. Dionne's column on Howard Dean this morning.  Howard (Ginny) did the hard work, stirred the Dems from their lethargy, but was pronounced "unelectable" by the powers that be.  Hopefully they won't try to throw her over.  That will really piss me off.

        Electability wasn't an issue the voters came up with out of the blue.  Somebody was peddling it.  Voters bought it.  

        You're smart enough to know that ...

        those powers already backed Schrader. In the primary.  She won.

        Dean, bless him, didn't.  And while I still wish he had, I can see some of why he didn't.

        But she did win.  So what's your point?  The voters backed her.  The blogs have raced to her assistance. And the DCCC is trying to decide if they have a golden-haired boy they can pull out of their asses at this late moment?
