3. Dean is the clear favorite for DNC chair.
Every poll I've seen shows his popular support. I hope they make it unanimous.....that would send a strong signal to base that they are listening to us.

4. But many DNC members are not voicing support one way or the other
and those are the ones I worry about

I feel like I've done all I can by writing or talking to all my state's DNC members

11. A lot of good would come out of a Dean chairmanship.
I'm not strongly against the others, but strongly FOR Dean.

We need a good hit of good energy. This is the doctor I want in charge of the party.

12. If the DNC wants any of my money, they'd better have Howard Dean
..at the helm....

I haven't sent them a dime in months...and until liberals get control they won't see anymore...

If I wanted to fund republicans I'd give my money to the GOP....

13. Dean had it sewn up a while ago
One of my highest-ranking party officials (no names, to protect the innocent) said that Dean has about 70% of the vote of DNC delegates.

This thing is his for the taking.
