Howard Dean unmuzzled

WASHINGTON -- After Howard Dean last weekend declared Tom DeLay ought to be in jail, a longtime Democratic operative told me the party's national chairman had momentarily ripped off his muzzle but that it soon would be restored. My source erred, however, in believing that Dean ever had been muzzled. It's just that nobody has paid much attention to his rants.

Since his election as chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) on Feb. 12, Dean has studiously avoided most national television exposure. But he has been talking constantly to party gatherings across the country, and his intemperate language at these outings contradicts the notion that he has been kept under control. That he will leap onto the national stage Sunday by accepting a long-pending request to appear on NBC's "Meet the Press" with Tim Russert raises concern among the Democratic political players whether he will contain himself.

i hope they dont muzzle him
as they work for us

hes the best thing to have working for the republicans

I thought Dean was going to be an uphill fight for the Republican party, but the way it worked out, he didn't have the Kennedy stamp of approval and was torpedoed by his own party.

Let's see now, Kennedy sent us;

Mondale - Lost
Kerry - Lost
DuCaucas (Sp) - Lost

I wonder when the Democrats will take their party back.
