"Chance favors the prepared mind. Never forget it."
--Howard Dean, chair of the Democratic National Committee, defending his 50-state plan
Longish profile of Gov. Dean in today's NYTimes. Though mostly not present on American TV these days, the good guv is very much at work in the trenches, building the party in every state of the union, often against the wishes of the leading presidential contenders and their highly paid consultants.
Dean is prepared to relinquish his leadership at the end of his current term in 2009, but apparently he's gotten promises that any future Democratic standard-bearer will continue his program to contest Republicans everywhere, even in the reddest of red states.
Since we're poster-children for the Dean approach, we're gonna say "amen, Brother."
