Thoughts: I think this is going to happen a lot in the coming months

In my opinion it is only a matter of time until Howard Dean is forced to step down as the chairman of the Democratic Party. One Democrat has already came out and told Howard Dean to shut up.
North Dakota Rep. Earl Pomeroy is accusing Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean of overstepping his bounds, saying the former presidential candidate should not give up on the war in Iraq.

On Monday, Dean likened the war in Iraq to Vietnam and said, "The idea that the United States is going to win the war in Iraq is just plain wrong."

"My words to Howard Dean are simple - shut up," Pomeroy told WDAY Radio in North Dakota on Thursday.

Pomeroy later told the Associated Press that he is tired "of the overblown rhetoric on both sides."

"We have young men and women with their lives on the line," he added. "The debate has fallen far short of what they deserve."

Pomeroy said Dean wasn't representing Democrats like him when he discussed the war.

"He is not hired to make major policy announcements on behalf of all the Democrats," Pomeroy said. "As our party chairman I believe he needs to focus on the nuts and bolts of winning elections."

Rep Pomeroy knows Democrats will not get elected while the Democratic Chairman is spewing anti-American rhetoric like Howard Dean has been doing.

Pomeroy is wrong about one thing, I think the Chairmen of the parties are there to set agendas< to a certain extent, of the Parties. Howard Dean epitimises the base of the Democratic party. That is who they are and what they believe in.

I hope more prominent Democrats come out and denounce Howard Dean. As much as I want the top Democrats to spew there hate, as it is good for Republicans, I'd rather see the Democratic Party move back to the center and away from the far left.
