2. I support Dean for DNC chair. It's not Dean who is dividing the party,
Edited on Sun Jan-23-05 12:55 PM by blm
now. He is, in fact, quite moderate and centrist in his own politics and now has an effective appeal to many on the left. I think many Democrats are pissed off at Dean's supporters who keep attacking other Democrats as if they don't belong in the party and should be run out on a rail.

That tactic is NOT helpful to Dean. He will likely win as chair and if he is to SUCCEED at uniting all factions of the party, his more virulent supporters have to STOP attacking them.
