Great headlines of our time: "Some Dems nervous as Dean resurges" 

And worst of all, I think it's accurate. Losing to Bush in 2004 doesn't make them nervous. Losing the Senate in 2002 doesn't make them nervous. Bush's appointment in 2000 doesn't make them nervous.

But reform? That makes them nervous. A good story in USA Today:

Trepidation, resignation, cautious optimism and outright enthusiasm are just some of the reactions among Democrats as they contemplate Dean's rise from the ashes of a failed nomination bid.
(via USA Today)

And why trepidation?

There is still some unease about Dean's grass-roots multitudes, whom he mobilized for his DNC bid. "His people tend to be a bit left," Pederson says, adding some DNC members in Arizona were "alarmed" at the avalanche of calls from them.

Being a Democratic official would be so easy, if only it weren't for those pesky Democrats. Heh. Honestly, an "avalanche" of calls from voters is a problem for a party that calls itself "Democratic"?

One definition of insanity is "doing the same thing again and expecting a different result." So, we're going to do the things that make us lose and then win?
