The beginning of the clone wars
A few weeks ago, Senator Kennedy warned Democrats not to be Republican clones. Now here's Susan Estrich's latest column in support of Howard Dean as Democratic National Committee chairman (my italics):
Republicans would be well advised to stop licking their chops at the prospect of Howard Dean taking over the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee. Because when it comes to energizing the base and developing a grass-roots fund-raising organization, there is no one on the Democratic side who does it better than Howard Dean. And that is precisely what helped the Republicans win last time around.As Master Yoda says in Attack of the Clones, "The shroud of the dark side has fallen, begun the clone war has."
