The consensus is that Howard Dean is in the lead in the February 12 race for chair of the Democratic National Committee.
That is good news, as activist Dean is the closest thing to the antithesis of current company-man chair Terry McAuliffe among those running.
The even better news, as reported by the L.A. Times, is that the Democratic governors and congressional representatives who oppose Dean are afraid to speak up because they fear angering his online and activist base. (Hey, that's us!)
And it is about time elected Democrats started fearing rank-and-file Democrats. Perhaps that is the first step in the process of representing the people who elect them.
Let's hope so anyway.
