Carville: Dean's leadership "Rumsfeldian"
James Carville tells reporters that were it not for Howard Dean's incompetence, Democrats would have 20 more House seats.

James Carville's plan to replace
Howard Dean with failed Senate candidate Harold Ford Jr. as chairman of the Democratic National Committee may have failed, but that doesn't seem to have stopped the former Clinton strategist's campaign against Dean.
Today, Carville is off
telling reporters that Dean's leadership is "Rumsfeldian in its incompetence," and that if Dean had just listened to the often-abrasive Southerner and spent $6 million the DNC had on hand then the Democrats could have picked up as many as 50 House seats, roughly 20 more than they've won to date. And yes, Carville still wants to see Dean replaced.
