Dean Reaches Out to the Hill
DNC Chairman Howard Dean "will meet separately with House Members and Senators this week, the most public sign of his outreach to Congress since winning the post last month," Roll Call reports. "Dean is scheduled to attend the Senate Democratic luncheon Tuesday and speak at the House Democratic Caucus' weekly meeting Wednesday."

3. It makes sense to go on the road with a populist message
and then go back to D.C. to let people there know what's happening. This is going to be a good mix!

7. No doubt.
Unlike some people, he does not cherry pick his audience.

8. I think he ought to put the fear of God in those Dems...
...who voted, or plan on voting, with the Repunks on the Bankruptcy Elmiination and Loan Shark Protection Act of 2005. Namely, Holy Joe, the Delaware Duo, Nebraska Benny, and Johnson.

Dean ought to tell them to pass that bill would literally enslave people to the corporations, and that any kind of slavery or peonage is not only illegal, but unconstitutional.

9. Apparently Dean is carrying "persuasion" in his back pocket
and I hope he uses it. From what I read when Dean became chair of the party, it is the chair who determines where the money is going to go in the upcoming '06 races. In fact on one issue (perhaps this SS fight??--don't remember), it was stated that he would use those purse strings to threaten those who would not stand together on the issue. If this is true, then I hope Howard takes over the job of 'stage directing' this party to make it a force.
