So the Democratic Party will now be led by Howard Dean, M.D.
For a party still reeling because it keeps missing the mark with mainstream American values, the choice for party chairman could not have been worse had it been Dr. Kevorkian. Dean’s appeal during his abortive presidential run, lest anyone forget, was his “outsider” status.
Dean truly represented, as he used to say on the stump, “the Democratic wing of the Democratic Party” – as if there were nostalgia for the well-oiled McGovern machine.
The Dems might as well finish off the political euthanasia with the ’08 presidential nomination of Sen. Hilary Clinton.
