Here's a bit of criticism of Howard Dean: Democrats Criticize Dean.
Now, here's a fine rebuttal from Truthout: We Love Howard Dean.
My opinion? Sure, some of Dean's statements are a huge liability to the Democrats, and could very well cost them, in the long run. After all, Democrats are held accountable for what they say, while Republicans are not. But Truthout is right - the Democrats should try devoting a little attention to the fact that the current administration should be impeached, tried, convicted, incarcerated, and treated according to their own rules of imprisonment. Fair is fair.
