Me to Carville. Shut up.

James Carville is one of several "big name Democrats" (from now on BND's) making noise about replacing Howard Dean with Harold Ford as chair of the Democratic party. This is one time when I am nearly speechless.

The reasoning of these BND's is quite simply laughable. To quote the article "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. " Huh?

Without that strategy the Democrats don't come close to controlling the Senate. Jim Webb wasn't considered a serious challenger to Allen 6 months ago and by the old rule book he is a token candidate in a lost cause. There are Dems from deep red states now holding seats held by R's who would never even have been recruited if not for the Dean strategy.

Frankly why these BND's are now sniping at Dean is beyond me. If Dean oversee's a losing effort then lets discuss tossing him out of leadership. But the results of this election were unarguably revolutionary in scope, in favor of the Democratic party. Now is the time for these old blood Dems to stand and cheer... we can argue strategy in a couple of months when the Presidential primaries start heating up.

These DLC, BND types need to sit down and shut up if they can't get on board. The party is moving on without them if they won't get on board.
