'Yaaaaarghhhhh, Part Deux'

From Ezra Klein over at Pandagon:
"For Dean to grab a vote-rich, swing-state like Florida this early leaves him with the momentum at the exact instant the theoretical consensus candidates should be demonstrating their easy path. "

It looks as if Howard Dean is the major frontrunner to be the new chair of the DNC. Not sure how I feel about this. On the hand, a brilliant organizer and great at rallying the base and spreading the message. On the other hand, that damn so-called 'scream' is going to be played over and over, and you just know that Coulter and her ilk are going to run with it in an effort to smear the Democratic Party as the Party of Radicalism.
I honestly think Bill Clinton might have been a better choice. Hell, no way he could get more vilified by the right, and we KNOW he can raise money, and nobody is better at 'connecting' with the people. But that's just my opinion.
