Dean, the Democratic Party and the DNC (Continued)
"Harold Ickes, a leading Democratic activist and former aide to President Clinton, said Friday he is backing Howard Dean to be chairman of the Democratic National Committee -- giving a powerful boost to the front-runner.-from the CNN story, "Former Clinton aide backs Dean for party chair." Salon has "Howard Dean or anybody but?" tonight: "The two leading candidates to head the Democratic National Committee are a former congressman who cozied up to George W. Bush in his last run for reelection -- and still lost -- and a failed presidential candidate who so frightens some conservative Democrats that they may go Republican if he is elected chairman."
