Howard Dean – DNC Chair

This is not really news, but I think Howard Dean's acceptance speech as chairman of the Democratic National Committee is worth a read.

Perhaps now the Democrats will make some headway with a new philosophy that was stated by Dean in his speech: “If we want to win nationally, we have to win locally.” This is the grassroots campaign philosophy that got so many involved during the presidential nominee process (specifically with Dean), and I'm hopeful that when this is applied across the board that “Today will be the beginning of the reemergence of the Democratic Party.”
