Here’s the sort of stuff that’s popping up on one of the most-read sites, Daily Kos:
“I asked a DNC member I know personally, what he thought about Dean’s chances. He said there is really one main impediment and gave a very simple, direct suggestion for activists. He said, ‘you need to apply tremendous pressure to Hillary.’ I asked, ‘Are you saying she’s in the way?’ He replied: “Yes!” (via MyDD)
Hillary has shown an incredible capacity to tack right while retaining the affection of traditional liberals, but the liberal bloggers are a younger, newer group without those loyalties. These guys aren’t going to make or break a Clinton candidacy, but they’re not enemies she needs either. It’ll be interesting to see whether the Clintons can scupper Dean’s bid without leaving fingerprints, or making enemies.
