Another Dem Fight: Dean is "Rumsfeldian"?
While House Dems stew over the mix-up concerning who will be Majority Leader, DNC chair Howard Dean is taking potshots from an unlikely source; James Carville. In an anti-Dean tirade yesterday, Carville blasted Dean as "Rumsfeldian in its competence" and vigorously called for his immediate ouster. Carville, in turn, was quickly trashed as either an operative for Rahm Emanuel or simply thirsty for publicity (he has been AWOL a lot since the demise of "Crossfire"). The Dems may not realize what image this infighting projects. They were elected on a platform of change and bipartisanship. They aren't changing a thing and can't even get along with other Dems. How will they peacefully co-exist in D.C. with GOPers when they're bashing themselves over an ideological split?
