Howard Dean's 50 State Strategy Completely Vindicated

I was a big fan of his 50 state strategy for the Democrats when Howard Dean took over the DNC unlike say.....

Paul Begala "He -- yes, he's in trouble, in that campaign managers, candidates, are really angry with him. He has raised $74 million and spent $64 million. He says it's a long-term strategy. But what he has spent it on, apparently, is just hiring a bunch of staff people to wander around Utah and Mississippi and pick their nose. That's not how you build a party. You win elections. That's how you build a party."

or like...

Rahm Emanuel "Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean and the leader of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee have clashed angrily in recent days in a dispute about how the party should spend its money in advance of this fall's midterm elections.

Rep. Rahm Emanuel (Ill.), who is leading the party's effort to regain majority status in the House, stormed out of Dean's office several days ago leaving a trail of expletives, according to Democrats familiar with the session."

More here.

These two inside the beltway DLC, Republican - lite, out of touch "centrist" Democrats supposedly are on the same team as the rest of us but they didn't believe in this strategy and Rahm definitely didn't believe in many of the candidates who won in the house. How do we know this? Because he supported other candidates who ran in the Democratic primary and he didn't help out many financially as head of DCCC. Pretty easy to figure out.

Howard Dean was right and Paul Begala and Rahm Emanuel were wrong.

I wonder who will take credit for the victory?

Howie Klein over at Down With Tyranny has more on Rahm if you are interested. He doesn't like Rahm for all the right reasons I might add.
