Scream 2

December 2004
New Republic;12/13/2004, Vol. 231 Issue 24, p9
The article reports that Democrat Howard Dean is running for the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee. News reports suggest that Howard Dean has designs on the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). This is one of those key moments when Democrats must decide what course to take in the wake of the 2004 election. Given the importance of the DNC chairmanship--with Democrats shut out of power at both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue, it may be the most influential position in the party--it is worth reviewing Dean's credentials. The single greatest challenge facing the Democratic Party is its dire need to reestablish its credibility on national security. Another critical qualification for prospective DNC chairmen ought to be a record of appealing to culturally conservative voters.
