Some big name Democrats want to oust DNC Chairman Howard Dean, arguing that his stubborn commitment to the 50-state strategy and his stinginess with funds for House races cost the Democrats several pickup opportunities.
The candidate being floated to replace Dean? Harold Ford.
Supposedly, it is James Carville - not previously known to be a mental defective, but I guess one never knows - shopping this "idea" around. So let me get this straight: The guy who fought tooth and nail for the so-called 50 State Strategy, which is to say the guy responsible more than any other single individual for the royal ass-whuppin' visited this week upon the criminal syndicate known as the Republican Party, is being targeted for elimination by the very people responsible for the Democrats' recent string of electoral humiliations. And who do the establishment Democrats like to take Dean's place? A guy just like them - someone with a center-right philosophy and a losing record. Unfortunately, that sounds about right.
