Howard Dean's opening act

Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean started off the meeting to reconsider Florida and Michigan's role in the nominating process with a media-bashing, party-boosting rant.

Perhaps in response to widespread criticism of Dean's lack of diplomacy and leadership in resolving the Democratic family fued, Dean lashed out at the "cynics...who are looking for conflict," and with regards to candidate Hillary Clinton, the "sexist comments -- particularly by members of the media.''

He commended the party for being ready to nominate its first African-American or female nominee and for turning out at the polls in record numbers.

And he advised the DNC rules committee to "respect" the voters of Florida and Michigan -- "They did not cause this problem'' -- and the candidates and 48 states who followed the rules.

I guess Ms. Brizelle has no memory of history. Her ancestors were once counted as only 2/3 of a person; now she has decided that I am only 1/2 of a person. Damn her and all the other supposedly "undemocratic insiders". They have never held office and watching Ms. Demond? who has been secretary how long? God help us all. They have pushed me over to the other side and I doubt that I will ever return. THanks
