Howard Dean and the Democrats, Round 2

Hosted by
Howard Dean just got into the race, but already he's the frontrunner, even though mainstream Democrats, who want the Party to pull toward the center, are trying to stop him. This weekend, it's the contest to chair the Democratic National Committee and, this time, he may be harder to beat. Newt Gingrich says Democrats must have a "death wish," but is he just spinning the Republicans- worst fears? Is Dean really a liberal who shoots from the lip?

What about gay rights, abortion, the war in Iraq, and We hear more about Dean's race to head the DNC from political journalists, state Democratic Party officials, activists, and consultants.
