Kos Wants Dean as DNC Chairman

Kos is calling for Terry McAuliffe to be ousted as DNC Chairman, to be replaced by Howard Dean.

I think this is unlikely for two reasons:

One, I doubt Dean’s ability to manage the party effectively. His Presidential campaign was successful at leveraging the internet for fund-raising and organization, yet it did not translate into a meaningful primary campaign for him. Hard to build a credible case for managing a national party, when he couldn’t manage his own campaign.

Two, I fully expect the Clinton wing of the Democratic party to continue its control over the Democratic party. In a party whose candidates run on star power, Clinton is still the biggest star. McAuliffe might be ousted, but he’ll be replaced with another Clinton apparatchik. The better to secure Hillary’s Presidential ambitions in 2008.
