Is that all he ever did in his career, just scream at a campaign rally and embarass himself? Or is that all you know about him?

That one incident was so “blown” out of proportion! He is an effective fundraiser, which is the party chairman’s main role, and he keeps a tight leash on all the disparate groups in the tent so they stay focused on the goal of uniting around a candidate to win elections.

He turns out to be a surprisingly effective fundraiser, and is doing a great job helping align various interest groups with the Democratic party. Why, who would you have proposed?

What made Dean such a novelty was his ability to stir up support at a grassroots level, that and his use of the new internet technology. He looked like he understood where the future of campaigning was headed.
