Two not so crazy ideas?
So we did some surfing around and we found an article where James Carville says that Howard Dean should be dumped as DNC chair.
Our initial thought? "That's crazy."
After all, we just won the U.S. House. We just won the Senate, including a seat in Montana, where, as we understand it, it's legal to shoot liberals.
But then James explains it to us...
Carville... said Democrats could have picked up as many as 50 House seats, instead of the nearly 30 they have so far.
The reason they didn’t, he said, is the Democratic National Committee did not spend some $6 million it could have put into so-called “third tier” House races against vulnerable Republicans.
Carville said the other Democratic campaign committees had borrowed to the hilt...
Carville likened the Democratic takeover of Congress to the civil war battle at Gettysburg, which the Union army won but failed to pursue the Confederate army when it retreated.
“We should have chased them down,” Carville said.
To be clear, the Solon Democrats aren't advocating the removal of Howard Dean. But we'll listen to anything James Carville says.
To continue the discussion, one must ask the follow up question: "If Howard Dean goes, who replaces him?"
For that, we offer a crazy... or perhaps not so crazy... idea of our own:
