Race for the DNC Chair

MyDD has a nice look at how the issue is shaping up at this very moment, and I'm inclined to agree. I was hoping it wouldn't happen, but it looks like it's turning into a Dean vs. the Establishment battle. And the most prominent establishment candidate is Martin Frost. Typically, he's a pretty conservative Dem. I don't have a huge problem with that, even though it's the tactic that's kept costing us elections. What I do have a huge problem with is that he's adopted that other most infamous ot recent tactics-- distancing himself from his fellow Democrats. And sucking up to Bush, which is utterly inexcusable at this point in time. Like I've said before, it's imperative that we start putting fighters in the trenches. To use Civil War parlance, it's time for Grant to take the reins from McClellan.
