Howie's coming off an impressive trouncing of Kucinich, who is arguably more lefty than Dean, in the MoveOn primary. As I've noted before, Dean's really not all that liberal when you get down to it, so it's cool to see that progressive elements in the party are getting behind him.
[A]s improbable as it would have seemed three months ago, some Capitol Hill political realists have now accepted — even embraced — the notion that Dean will end up as the Democratic nominee. "I want to beat Bush and I think Dean is the best guy to do that," said a senior Senate Democratic staffer, who spoke to MSNBC.com on condition that he not be named. "I'm convinced he’s going to win the nomination. He has won 'the inspiration primary' and he won the fund-raising primary," leading all Democratic contenders with $7.5 million raised in the second quarter.
