Take Back the House

Dean's got the beginnings of a plan to take back the House, according to this secondhand account of an NPR interview he did today.
Finally, Dean telegraphed his election strategy--for the House! He said that his plan was to take back the House and maybe the Senate (we usually look at it the other way around!) by targetting 20 or so close districts with all the Deanista (my word, not his) energy and money. This is his plan now--a full year out from the election, and he's doing as much or more work planning a congressional strategy than the DCCC.
If the good doctor asks me to focus my energy on a nearby House race next fall, I'll do it. You can bet everyone else who's part of Dean For America would do it, too. That would be exciting.

Now I can flesh out my notes to the DCCC when I send back their requests for money sans check but with a little "SUPPORT HOWARD DEAN!" message and a Dean sticker. Heheh.
