Howard Dean wasn't my horse for the Democratic presidential nomination, but he did a damned lot of good in terms of organizing and just plain showing people that it's OK to act like, you know, a Democrat once in a while. Now there's a possibility he may become Chair of the Democratic National Committee.
I endorse this idea, whole-heartedly.
Morat and Ezra at Pandagon outline why this would be a good thing. It's a cool idea, a sort of "shot in the arm" that the Democrats need right now. The political equivalent of smelling salts, if you will.
