The Democratic Pary is Ours

Ripped from a semi-good piece from Newsweek
Early in the last "cycle," in 2001, the Republican National Committee outraised the DNC by a 3-1 margin. So far this year, that ratio has been cut to 2-1. More important is the way it was raised. In the past the party relied on "soft money" from millionaires. But such donations are now illegal. Officials esti-mate that $12 million of the $14 million the Dean regime has collected so far this year has come from those who gave less than $250. "For people who really look hard at the numbers, he's wowing people," says Elaine Kamarck, a respected DNC member. (emphasis mine)
I am beginning to understand why some Dems are taking potshots at Dean's leadership instead of standing behind him when he TELLS THE TRUTH about the republican party. The takeover of the Democratic Party by the grassroots has happened so quickly and so thoroughly, that the former DLC/corporate elite must be feeling as useless as they have proven to be these last few decades. Without a charisma-pulsar like Bill Clinton, I believe the Democratic Party would have been far worse off in their leadership. We are moving our power structure back to the state and local parties that are now funding our populist Democratic Party.

As for the potshots, Dean can handle them. Dean doesn't have to run for office in 2006. I'm convinced that the only outrage felt by Americans is purely manufactured by the sort of republicans who will use any reason to hate any Democrat, invented or real. Ask your republican friends and family, chances are they don't even know who Dean is, or they know him as that guy who screamed. Soon, they'll know him in 2006 and 2008 as the DNC chair that engineered that take back of America by the American people.

To paraphrase a quote about another fighting Dem, "Give 'em hell Howard!"
