Response to Original message
35. Two questions:
1. You mention the DNC in the subject heading and refer to the DLC, a very separate entity, in the body of your message. This is probably just a typo, yes?

2. I've read the moronic statements from From and the DLC about Dean, but what makes you think that Clinton would support such nonsense? I know that the DLC thinks they "made" Clinton. My opinion of them at this point is that they have too much power and are nothing but rich party insiders in D.C. who are currently completely disinterested in democracy. But can we assume that just because some kingpins of the DLC don't like Dean, Clinton doesn't like him either? I don't know that that necessarily follows.

There have been actual memos from the DLC online, but there has also been a heck of a lot of gossip concerning the relationships between the DNC, the DLC, the Clintons, and certain candidates. (And much of this gossip has been heavily fueled by the Republicans.)
