What is up with James Carville?
First we find out from Woodward’s book that Carville told the White House about Kerry’s plans to contest the Ohio election. Now he is wanting Howard Dean to apologize for not winning big enough in this past mid-term election.
Democratic strategist James Carville yesterday said Howard Dean should be replaced as chairman of the Democratic National Committee for failing to pursue a greater margin of victory in last week’s midterm elections.
“I would describe his leadership as Rumsfeldian in its competence,” Mr. Carville said during a meeting with reporters, a reference to outgoing Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, who has been reviled by Democrats.
Both Mr. Carville and Democratic strategist Stan Greenberg said the DNC should have invested more money in congressional races.
Now Carville wants to replace winning Howard Dean with right of center, election losing Rep. Harold Ford Jr.
Boggles the mind.
