The Republican Jewish Coalition is already smearing the Governor Dean, the newly elected chairman of the Democratic Party. They have purchased advertisements in several Jewish newspapers featuring some bad pictures.
The remarks caused a heated debate between Gov. Dean and Sen. Lieberman during the primary debates.
I have the original NJDC email containing quotes from the Jewish community. The text of that email is no longer online.

The grandson of the late Vice President Hubert Humphrey and the son of former state Attorney General Skip Humphrey first said he wasn't interested in joining a growing list of candidates seeking the party nomination. But Buck Humphrey said later that he wouldn't rule out running for the open Senate seat.
Other potential DFL candidates include Minneapolis lawyer Mike Ciresi, Senate Majority Leader Dean Johnson of Willmar, state Senator Steve Kelley of Hopkins, former Congressman Bill Luther, Hennepin County Attorney Amy Klobuchar, and former public development official Rebecca Yanisch.

This is not the way I want my party run. I believe in a big tent. I want to find common ground with Republicans. I disagree politically with them but, in the end, we are still Americans and need to get along together. This was in the New York Daily News:
But Dean said the Democrats should not change their beliefs to be "Republican lite."

It looks as if Senator Bayh is out of the fainthearted faction. I am relieved at this myself. I missed the show this morning so I was glad that Josh blogged about it.
Anyway, I have posted some of my comments below the split. I for one had figured he would oppose efforts to privatize social security after seeing the poll that all Democrats were opposed to the President's plan.
