    ...should've said 'Dean or Rosenberg'

    Both strike me as great possibilities. I liked someone's comment a few months back that they should split the role.

    •  What are Rosenberg's bona fides? (none)
      If you dont mind enumerating a few.

      I admit, I havent been paying much attention to him, other than that he comes up as someone Kos thinks is ok, seeing on front page on occasion.

      I think he was a guest on MR a few weeks ago, and if I remember correctly, he seemed more go-along re the Iraq war wing. More Kerryish, ie, the How we did it.

      I admit, I am not clear on it. Recollection is vague. Dont want to say its so if not, but wonder if it is, is that an indication of a rather DLCish mentality? What makes him more palatable than the others to people on board here?

        Rosenberg I know entirely from ACT (America Coming Together) who were big on the registration/GOTV effort for Kerry.

        There was a long piece in the NYTimes magazine about him, he sounds like he's got great grassroots ideas and the clout to get them done.

            From the southern caucus my favorite line of the night was when he said, paraphrased with quotes,
            "i'll let others worry about Frist, Hastert, and Chimp.  I want to focus on Mehlman and Rove."

            I like that he obviously wants to compete on a strategic level.
