POLITICS: The Good Ship Howard Dean

So, Dean finally did win a primary, owing to a sympathetic vote yesterday from his former constituents in Vermont. If you missed it, Howard Kurtz had a long and interesting post-mortem in Sunday's Washington Post on the Dean campaign from the inside. (Link via The Corner). One lesson: when your campaign staff is so out of touch they need Rob Reiner to tell them what's going on in the real world, that's a problem. It's probably also true, as Kurtz suggests, that Dean never really expected to win and may on some level have undermined his own campaign by being unwilling to accept the discipline of a frontrunner.
