The DNC Odd Couple

Let's be honest, with the exception of Roemer these are ALL good Democrats.
But they are not all good for the job. I think the DNC has two options in the race: Howard Dean and Martin Frost.
Each of these men combine real political skill with a fighter's heart. And though I am not convinced prowess on a Sunday morning talkshow should be a vital part of the DNC members' decision, not only CAN these take on Ken Mehlman but these two will--and with gusto.
But I think the truest mesure of these two men is each of their respective records:
Howard Dean ran one of the most significant campaigns of the last 50 years--only JFK's 1960 run measures up in terms of ingeniuty. I have every belief if he is elected he will bring similar dynamism to the party.
Martin Frost ran one of the bravest campaigns of the last 50 years, staring down Tom DeLay and Karl Rove and the rest of their thugs. He has a proven record of running smart campaigns, surrounding himself with superb staff, raising huge sums of money, and taking on the hardest of fights.
And unlike Fowler and Rosenberg these men understand how politics works outside of DC.
