No Dean 

Just for the record, I think this Howard Dean for DNC chair talk is one of the worst ideas I've ever heard. Nothing would convince voters that Democrats are out of touch Northeastern liberals more than appointing a man most of them think is an out of touch Northeastern liberal as head of the Democratic party. Also, they think he's fucking crazy. This isn't fair, and I think Dean can repair his image and be, once again, the most qualified nominee in 2008, but he cannot repair his own image and lead the party at the same time (especially when much of the damage to his image was caused by members of that same party).

I do think Howard Dean will play an important role for the Democrats and this country in the future. But this is not the time nor the place.

I don't think who the leader of either the RNC or the DNC is at a given time changes the minds of many voters. But can you name a single group of voters who might be more likely to consider the Democrats because Howard Dean is put in charge? Because I could name about ten groups of voters who would take us less seriously.
