Kennedy for Dean?

This is interesting, if true. The Boston Herald suggests that Ted Kennedy is now for Dean for DNC chair:
State party leaders - including Massachusetts Democrats with the blessing of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy - are backing Howard Dean to chair the Democratic National Committee, giving him an edge to win the election in two weeks.
Also, Oregon is for Dean. (That one's not so surprising, I guess.)

The best comment I read recently about this whole thing was Morat, in this thread, saying:
They have a guy with such support that people -- not party officials and politicians, but people -- actually give a damn who gets the DNC chair.

And their response? "We've got to stop that guy!".
That pretty much sums up a big part of the problem with the Democrats. Yep.

Its stuff like this that lends credence to the "liberal party elite knowing better than the common people" meme.

I actually don't think the party elite are all that liberal. Elite, for sure, but mostly corporate sell-outs, I think. (See: Begala, P.)
